Over the past five years the Loveland Police Department took an average of 200 reports on juvenile runaways annually. In Colorado, it is not a crime to run away; however, by completing a Runaway Report, the parent or guardian gives us permission to enter the child into a national database. Once a law enforcement officer takes custody of the child, the officer will contact the parent or guardian to pick them up. We understand that this can be a difficult time for families. We will do what we can to help you.
Although rare in our community, there are times when a child is abducted. Below, we have provided you links to prevention tips and a national database for missing and abducted children.
