About Colorado Bureau of Investigation

Created by the Colorado Legislature on July 1, 1967, CBI was intended to support and assist local, county and state criminal justice agencies through the provision of professional investigative and forensic laboratory services, as well as the management and administration of criminal justice records and data sharing. For more than four decades CBI has earned the reputation for professional and responsive service for the citizens of Colorado, and maintains the vision of being Colorado’s premier criminal justice agency, providing excellence in leadership, service, and support to Colorado’s citizens and communities.

The members of CBI have identified our focused commitment to the concept that we are at our best when supporting the criminal justice system and the community through leadership and excellence in investigations, forensic laboratory services and the management of information. We are passionate about fighting crime, promoting safety, and managing information to enhance justice and improve the quality of life throughout Colorado. We are also acutely aware that in order to succeed in our mission, we must build and nurture relationships and partnerships with local communities, as well as establish and maintain effective communication with the Office of the Governor and the Colorado Legislature.
