Rules and Regulations


Virtually all state government agencies issue rules and regulations of some kind. Most rules and regulations exist at the direction of the state legislature in order to regulate certain business and personal activities. Rules and regulations exist because it’s easier to update them, eliminate them, or alter them administratively than it is to pass new legislation each year as conditions change.

The process of reviewing and changing rules and regulations is a public one. The rules and regulations issued by the Colorado Department of Public Safety are shown here so that you may know about the process and can comment on how they could affect you or your business. Your comments will be taken into consideration during the rulemaking process, and you are always welcome to attend any meetings associated with the rulemaking process.  If you have questions concerning CDPS rules, please cont(act CDPS Rules Administrator, Bobbie Mooney at roberta.mooney@state.co.us.

Rulemaking Proposed for the

Division of Homeland Security and Emergency Management

The Division of Homeland Security and Emergency Management (DHSEM) is preparing to begin the process to promulgate new rules to implement the newly created Law Enforcement, Public Safety, and Criminal Justice Information Sharing Grant Program ("Grant Program").
 
House Bill 19-1073 created the Law Enforcement, Public Safety, and Criminal Justice Information Sharing Grant Program (“Grant Program”) and authorized the Director of the Division of Homeland Security and Emergency Management to promulgate rules as necessary to implement the Grant Program. See C.R.S. section 24-33.5-1617. The Grant Program is designed to provide grants to assist local law enforcement agencies in gaining access to the Colorado Information Sharing Consortium ("CISC") information-sharing systems. The grant money may be used to pay for costs associated with connecting to the CISC systems, including computer hardware, software, and programming costs. Therefore, DHSEM is now working to promulgate rules to implement the Grant Program as required by section 24-33.5-1617(2)(d), C.R.S..
 
We invite your written comments during this initial state until noon on Monday August 19th.
