Operation Safe StayOperation Safe Stay Logo

One way of preventing crime is by targeting locations where criminals often operate: hotels, motels and apartments. Operation Safe Stay takes existing relationships between hotel operators/landlords and police a step further by educating participants on crime prevention strategies and providing marketing support. The Greeley Convention and Visitor’s Bureau endorses the program and lists participating organizations in its marketing materials.

Shoplifting Task ForceShoplifter Task Force

Our mission is to facilitate successful prosecution of criminals preying on retail businesses in the Greeley area, focusing primarily on individuals and groups whose main means of support is retail criminal enterprise.

The Shoplifter Task Force will target organized career criminals, gather intelligence connecting individuals and groups, and diligently pursue all avenues of criminal enterprise associated with persons engaging in organized retail crime.

This task force was developed after recognizing a need for a different approach to combating an ever increasing retail theft problem in this area. It is a cooperative effort, utilizing resources from the Greeley Police Department, Evans Police Department, 19th Judicial District Attorney’s Office of Weld County, and the Colorado Organized Retail Crime Alliance (COORCA). Together we have taken a proactive, aggressive stance on organized retail crime and retail theft in general. This collaborative effort has already been effective in training Officers to be more alert to signs of organized theft when responding to retail theft calls for service and has led to numerous arrests and convictions.

In order to facilitate communication between the cooperating organizations we will provide training to law enforcement and civilian participants, utilize social and electronic media, participate in and organize intelligence sharing thru regular meetings.

Integral members of the Shoplifter Task Force include the following retail organizations:

Safeway, King Soopers, JcPenney, Kohl’s, Walmart, Target, Home Depot, Sears, TJ Maxx, Rite-aid, Walgreens, Bed Bath & Beyond, Macy’s, Boot Barn, The Children’s Place, Sprouts, and the Greeley Mall.

Additional Criminal Justice Agencies Participating include Loveland PD, Longmont PD, Fort Collins PD, State of Colorado D.O.C, Weld County Probation, ICCS, Weld County S.O., Crimestoppers, and the National Coalition of Law Enforcement and Retail Group.
