Mobile Phone Drive for Domestic Violence Awareness Month
The Commerce City-Brighton Victim Services Unit (VSU) wants to put your used cell phone into the hands of someone who may need it in an emergency. Throughout Domestic Violence Awareness Month in October, the VSU is encouraging donations of used mobile phones and chargers in designated drop off locations in the city.
All mobile phones sold in the United States are able to call 911 in an emergency, even without service from a carrier. Secure the Call, a nonprofit partner organization, wipes the donated phones of all personal information, returns them to factory settings and distributes them to victims of domestic violence, seniors and other at-risk individuals for use in emergencies.
Donation barrels are available throughout October at the following locations:
Commerce City Civic Center, 7887 E. 60th Ave.
Eagle Pointe Recreation Center, 6060 Parkway Dr.
Bison Ridge Recreation Center, 13905 E. 112th Ave.
You Have Options to Report Sexual Assault
The Commerce City Police Department is a certified agency in the You Have Options Program, a nationwide effort focused on changing how law enforcement responds to sexual violence. The program centers on giving the victim choices when reporting and control over the investigative process. Reports can be made in-person, online, anonymously or by a third party. We are here for you.
Sexual Assault Taskforce
In 2018, Commerce City and Brighton worked together to create an innovative, victim-centered way to handle sex crimes and centralize sexual assault investigations between the two jurisdictions. The Commerce City-Brighton Sexual Assault Taskforce (SATF), the first initiative of its kind in Colorado, provides an integrated approach to the response and investigation of sex crimes. All sex investigations and sex offender management are handled by a dedicated and specially-trained team of individuals who serve victims from the initial incident all the way through the courtroom.
