Amusement Rides & Devices

Due to the concerns related to COVID-19 and the current Red Level risk factor, the Division of Oil and Public Safety (OPS) continues to take precautions to protect the health and safety of our customers and our employees.  Most of our staff is currently working from home to comply with the higher level status.

This is in an effort to change the trajectory of this virus, and applies to state employees (with limited exceptions) in counties with orange or red levels of incidence. 

If you need assistance, please call 303-318-8525 to schedule an appointment or email us at cdle_ops@state.co.us 

All visitors will be required to wear a mask per the Governor’s Executive Order.

Thank you for your patience.
