Crime & Safety Program

Background

The safety and security of Arvada’s businesses is critical to the overall well-being of the community. Crime can have a significant impact on businesses, from financial losses to damage to their reputation and employee morale. In addition, crime can lead to a decline in the community’s economic growth and quality of life. Therefore, it is essential for communities to focus on decreasing crime on and in businesses, not only to protect their financial interests but also to ensure a safe and thriving community. By implementing measures to prevent and reduce crime and increase public safety, communities can create a safer and more prosperous environment for businesses to operate, attract new investments, and improve the quality of life for residents.  The Arvada Resiliency Taskforce is committed to ensuring that Arvada is the safest and most resilient community in Colorado through a proactive approach that encourages vigilance and education around crime and safety.
