Extreme Risk Protection Orders


On January 1, 2020, Colorado’s Extreme Risk Protection Order or “red flag” legislation went into effect. The law gives the public and law enforcement the ability to petition a court to have someone’s firearms taken away from their possession if they pose a danger to themselves or others. If a judge issues such an order, it is the responsibility of local law enforcement to serve the order. To comply with and enforce the new Extreme Risk Protection Order law, the Arapahoe County Sheriff’s Office created this policy.
