Safety

Safety is a concern in any community. While Arvada enjoys a relatively low crime rate, the serious nature of a number of crimes is increasing as are incidents related to identity theft and other economic crimes. Also, although the types of disasters that could impact Arvada residents tend to focus on nature-related incidents such as severe weather in the summer to blizzards in the winter. The threat from terrorism does exist, but the threat level remains low for the City of Arvada.  Information is provided below to inform, prepare and help keep you safe.
