Public Advisory-From TCSO



In an effort to reduce face to face interactions due to the increasing

spread of COVID-19 in the state, we are conducting our business a little

bit differently, for now.

CALLS FOR SERVICE: Our Communication Center will still receive all

requests for calls for service through our normal phone line

719-687-9652, and emergency calls to 9-1-1. Our Communication

Center Call Takers will assess each situation as it comes in. If it is a

crime that is in progress and is a risk to persons or property, a deputy

will be dispatched. If it is any other incident that is not active and not

posing an immediate threat, a deputy will reach the caller by phone.

BURN PERMITS: We are suspending the issuance of burn permits

until after March 30th. We are working on an online payment system in

the meantime.

CONCEALED WEAPONS PERMITS: We are suspending the issuance

of all concealed carry permits until after March 30th. If there is an

emergency need (domestic violence victim or other protected party) we

will assess this on a case by case basis.

PUBLIC WINDOW: Our public window, temporarily located inside the

jail lobby, will be closed until after March 30th. Requests should flow

through our dispatch non-emergency line, 719-687-9652.

Our goal is to minimize public exposure, while still carrying out our

mission to protect the citizens of Teller County. We will continue to

monitor this rapidly evolving situation and provide updates as
