As the COVID-19 cases continue to rise across the state of Colorado, the Colorado State Patrol (CSP) has activated a call center to assist its emergency dispatch centers and Emergency Operations Centers in offsetting the large number of phone calls coming in from the public for general information or assistance related to the pandemic.
According to the Colorado State Patrol, they are seeing community members, public safety workers, and individuals in the business sector seeking guidance from law enforcement concerning state public health orders.
In a press release to the media issued by CSP Public Affairs Representative Sergeant Blake White, he explains “Our mission is to help triage questions from the public from a law enforcement perspective and to assist the public with finding answers. The call center is NOT a 911 center and is not intended to assist with emergencies. ”
Those who may find this call center of assistance are:
- Public safety dispatch centers
- Local emergency operations centers
- Members of the trucking industry or other such business sectors
- Members of the public
The call center can be reached at 1-833-598-5553 during the operating schedule, or from 8:00 am to 5:00 pm. Monday through Friday.
