Message from the Sheriff 

"When it comes to building safer neighborhoods, it's essential that Mesa County collaborates with our community. I invite you to partner with us as we utilize technology to solve and prevent crime. I encourage you to take some time to explore our webpage and learn about the easy steps you can take today to not only protect your home but also help deputies solve crime.

Security cameras have increasingly become a valuable investigative tool. They may capture criminal activity or offer a vital clue to an ongoing investigation. If you have an exterior security camera system, I encourage you to join the free Neighbors app and the Mesa County Sheriff's Office Camera Registry program. Both are designed to make it easy to share potentially critical information captured on your home security camera with law enforcement while protecting your privacy. 

Thank you for taking the time to join us in creating a safer and more vibrant community."

- Sheriff Todd Rowell

9 PM Routine

The Mesa County Sheriff's Office encourages community members to follow the 9 PM Routine to reduce the likelihood of falling victim to property crimes.

Remove - Lock Up - Leave On.  Image of Car, light bulb, cell phone, wallet, and car keys

Every night at 9:00 p.m., go through this checklist:

  • REMOVE: Valuables, keys, wallets or any guns from your car.
  • LOCK UP: Car, house, windows, garage, gates, and sheds.
  • LEAVE ON: Exterior lights, security cameras, and alarm systems.

Gun safety

  • Remember, your car is not a gun safe.
  • Safely store your gun in a secure location in your home.
  • Thieves are known to target cars to steal guns.

Join us each night to help create safer neighborhoods in Mesa County.

Home safety

Simple ways you can help prevent crime

  • Use your deadbolt. Keep doors and windows locked even when you're at home.
  • Secure valuables outside or take them inside.
  • Don't hide keys under your doormat or near your door. That is where criminals look.
  • Leave outside lights on at night. Use a timer and motion lights.
  • Keep your garage door closed and secure the door connected to your home.
  • Plant shrubs with thorns near windows and fences to deter burglars.
  • Keep bushes trimmed so intruders don't have a place to hide.

    To reduce crime through collaboration with community members, the Sheriff's Office asks businesses and residents with surveillance camera systems to register those systems with the Mesa County Sheriff's Office.

    Registering your system with us does NOT give us access to your system.

    Registration simply lets deputies know of the existence of a camera or surveillance system at the registered address and who to contact should a crime occur in the area.

    If a crime or incident occurs near your home or business, deputies will contact you directly to see if your camera captured something that could help with the investigation.
