The Broomfield Police Department Civil Unit is responsible for serving civil papers received from citizens, attorneys, and the courts. These include, but are not limited to, serving court documents and civil papers such as civil or criminal summonses, protection orders, or eviction notices. In addition, the Civil Unit is responsible for satisfying court judgments by conducting sheriff's sales and overseeing evictions.
Protection Orders take priority over all other types of service. This is due to the potential for injury to those persons involved in such situations. Evictions are the second highest priority of the Civil Unit. These court orders are time sensitive and must be scheduled in advance of their execution. Officers assigned to the Civil Unit often encounter criminal activity while serving civil papers and executing court orders. When this occurs, the officers have authority to take appropriate action in accordance with the law.
The Civil Unit is occasionally required to seize property (both real and personal). If you have a dispute about who is rightly entitled to property seized by our office, you must take your dispute up with the Court. The Civil Unit will only seize, return, or sale property if there is an appropriate court order in place.
By law, the Civil Unit cannot give legal advice or opinions. If you are uncertain of what course of action you should take, you may refer to state statute, contact an attorney, or contact Legal Services at 303-837-1313. Additionally, help navigating the court system can be found at the Colorado Courts Self Help page, or by visiting the Self Help Center in the Broomfield Combined Courts.
