Do you have a relative or loved one living with special circumstances like Autism, dementia, loss of hearing/eyesight or PTSD, for example?

By providing information about these special circumstances to the Thornton Police & Fire 911 Emergency Communications Center, you can give first responders more AWARENESS during an emergency, when it could save valuable time.

Here’s how it works: click on the below links to fill out and submit the form, and voluntarily let first responders know what information would be helpful should they respond to the home. Information you provide might include how to best approach an individual with special needs or circumstances, how they might act or interact with police or fire personnel, where they might go if they leave the home, or what they might be drawn to if first responders are looking for them.

In addition, Thornton Police will provide an AWARENESS sticker (above), to be placed on a vehicle, residence, or any other place that can alert a first responder that someone may respond differently than expected. Even if you choose not to fill out the above-mentioned form, you can still get this sticker at Thornton PD headquarters (9551 Civic Center Drive), or Fossil Ridge Public Safety Center (13150 Quebec Street). To have a sticker delivered to you by a police officer, or if you have specific questions, simply email

Thank you for collaborating with us and giving us the opportunity to provide the highest quality of proactive service to you and those you care about.

Once you submit this form, your information will be maintained for 1 year. You will need to submit a new form each year to keep your information current.
