DENVER, CO (STL.News) Governor Jared Polis is proud to announce the growing list of local law enforcement agencies across the state accepting Colorado Digital ID™ as proof of identity, age and address during traffic stops. Police departments in Denver, Brighton, Broomfield, Cherry Hills Village, Colorado Springs, Durango, Johnstown, Lakewood, Loveland, Morrison, Parker, Thornton, Vail and Windsor are accepting the secure and contactless form of identification available in the myColorado™ mobile app.
“Just as more and more Coloradans are ditching their wallets and using smartphones to pay for things, it’s also getting easier to use your smartphone for your identification and driver license. Our goal is to bring the convenience of a secure, mobile digital identity solution to all Coloradans who own a smartphone, and I’m thrilled to see local law enforcement from across the state utilizing the benefits of this technology,” said Gov. Polis. “I want to thank all of the local law enforcement agencies that have joined this effort as we work to serve and protect our fellow residents.”
On Oct. 30, 2019, Gov. Polis signed an Executive Order to authorize Digital ID as a legal form of identification in Colorado. The Denver Police Department has been accepting the Digital ID since its inception, and Colorado State Patrol joined the program in November 2020.
