    Listen! contact JCOS rangers

    a friend of mine was up on NTM sunday and saw a couple of (censored) up there tearing up the trails on motorcycles ()... he had his cell phone but didn't know who to call.

    fwiw, for those who ride w/ phones– if you need to request a (jeffco) ranger be dispatched immediately (but non-emergency) call 303-277-0211; otherwise, call the Supervisor for the Park Rangers at 303-271-5995 to report stuff after the fact, or raise other open space concerns. edit: obviously use the former number judiciously.

    i'll try to get those contact numbers up on the (newly re-designed) COMBA website...


    goes w/o saying dial 911 only if necessary, but definitely when necessary.

    Also, call the Jeffco Sheriff's Dept. Just dial 411 and ask for Jefferson county dispatch. The Rangers barely work on weekends anyway. We've had so many issue living next to an open space trail head that Jeffco open space rangers won't show up unless its burning down. Sheriff and/or Golden PD will show up. Golden PD has no authority on open space until its in the city limits.

    Wow. You guys are so lucky that someone in authority might actually enforce that sort of thing if you reported it. My favorite trail up here has been absolutely ruined by motos, even though it's clearly marked as non-motorized. Forest service knows. Forest service don't much care.

    FS has no money for proper law enforcement since they concessioned out all the campgrounds in the 90s. Clear Creek has one gunslinger where they used to have six ticket writers. One of the worst things that agency ever did was deciding it would be better/cheaper to have outside contractors handle the campgrounds. They lost all their field presence and a huge force of seasonal workers who could be called upon for wildfire response, so a few years later, they had to hire fire crews. We commonly referred to them as truck polishers, since they don't seem to do squat unless there's a fire. Brilliant stuff...
