As a service to our community, the Gilpin County Sheriff's Office offers our citizens a vacation check program. Before you go out of town on vacation, give us a call and we will periodically check on your home to ensure that everything is secure.


If there a problem detected, the deputy will attempt to notify you or a designated caretaker.
