A message from Chief of Police Nichols:

The Commerce City Police Department’s Participation in the You Have Options Program demonstrates our commitment to sexual assault victims. Sexual assault victims will not only be heard but also have their individual concerns addressed during both the reporting and investigative process. The person who committed the assault is solely responsible for that assault and on our jobs as law enforcement officers is to gather evidence that will allow that offender to be held accountable for his/her crimes. All Commerce City Police Department employees have received additional training for interacting with victims of sexual assault. Our officers and detectives receive advanced training on trauma interviewing and investigative strategies to identify serial sexual perpetrators.

The You Have Options Program is based on twenty elements of a victim-centered and offender focused law enforcement response. I would encourage anyone preparing to report a sexual assault to the Commerce City Police Department to take a moment and familiarize them self with these elements to establish what you can expect throughout the reporting process and the options victims have. Our officers, investigators, and victim service professionals are always available to speak with you if there are any questions about the reporting or investigative process. You may remain anonymous when obtaining information, seeking medical attention, or reporting an assault.

We understand that every victim of sexual assault has unique needs and concerns. The You Have Options Program provides a foundation to ensure that the needs of each victim is considered and addressed. The Commerce City Police Department strives to provide exceptional service to sexual assault survivors throughout the investigative process, should they choose to report.

Please contact a member of the Commerce City Police Department for additional information if you have additional questions or we may be of service.
