Communications Division

The Black Hawk Communications Center was established in 1994, three years after limited gaming began in the City of Black Hawk. Originally, the Gilpin County Sheriff's Office dispatched emergency calls for the Black Hawk Police Department, but the demand on county services and the need for personalized service in Black Hawk led to the creation of the City's first Communications Center. The Communications Center was first established on the first floor of the City's historic 1870 school house after it was converted into a police station in 1997.  Today, Black Hawk Police Department dispatchers provide service for the Black Hawk Fire Department, the Gilpin Ambulance Authority and the Black Hawk Police Department. The Center is still located in its original location, is staffed with seven (7) dispatchers and directed by the Administrative Commander.

The Communications Center is able to receive Text-to-9-1-1 messages from the Speech and Hearing Impaired community, and from anyone in a situation where it is unsafe to speak into a mobile device. The Center also utilizes CodeRED to provide emergency community phone notifications during emergencies.
