City of Colorado Springs / Cemeteries / Cemetery Watch Program

Cemetery Watch Program

The more eyes and ears there are in the cemetery, the better the chance that a crime will be spotted or the criminal will hesitate to commit a crime.

Call Police at 444-7000 to report a crime. Only a witness to a crime can accurately report it. If there is an event that leads you to believe that someone might be injured; there is an imminent threat that exists, or there is a crime in progress, call 911.

Always contact the cemetery manager to advise them of an issue you have seen. The front office phone number is 385-6251.
