Safe Kids Larimer County has been in existence since 1998, first led by the Larimer County Health Department and led by UCHealth since 2002. We work closely with a number of community businesses, agencies, and organizations to expand our reach to reduce accidental injury to children birth to 19 years of age.
This month, we would like to thank the Colorado State University Police Department. Since Safe Kids has increased the ages we work with from 14 to 19 years of age, CSU PD has been a great partner to collaborate with. In August, we worked closely with them and the CSU alternative transportations department to put 250 bicycle helmets on the heads of incoming freshman.
Their commitment to keeping their students safe from injury is incredible to watch.From educational activities to providing the students with the helmets at no cost, the campus is a safer place because of the police department and alternative transportation. We appreciate their support and hard work!
The Colorado State University Police Department’s mission is: ‘To promote a safe and secure community while providing proactive police services through education, outreach and response.’
