Boulder County Sheriff’s Office Headquarters Experiences Power Outage Causing Closure

Tuesday, July 08, 2014

Emergency and public safety functions will continue on; administrative functions closed until power restored
Boulder County, Colo. – The Boulder County Sheriff’s Office has experienced a power outage due a damaged main electric line, which has caused a closure of administrative offices for the day.
A backhoe working on the new Coroner’s Office facility damaged the main electric line behind the Sheriff’s Office Headquarters (5600 Flatiron Pkwy) causing it to blow. There is currently only minimal power to the building from a generator which operates things such as emergency lights. Due to the lack of operational computers, HVAC, etc., Sheriff Joe Pelle has made the decision to close the administrative functions of the office for the remainder of the day.
Emergency response and other Sheriff’s Office services – such as the jail and the communications center – have not been affected by the power outage. Administrative services such as record requests, concealed carry permits, fingerprinting, etc. will be unavailable until the power has been restored.
Xcel Energy crews are currently on-scene working to restore power to the building and they hope to have it restored by regular business hours tomorrow morning.
