The Milliken Police Department is dedicated to the fight against underage drinking. The department enforces a zero tolerance on the consumption or possession of alcohol by persons under the age of 21. The Police Department was the recipient in 2002 of grant from the Colorado Department of Transportation, underwritten by the U.S. Department of Justice, Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Programs, that funded a youth education program, much of it in partnership with the Boys and Girls Club of Weld County, Two Rivers Unit in Milliken. It helped educate teens about the dangers and consequences of alcohol use and abuse.
Please be aware that Milliken has a zero tolerance policy on the possession, use, purchase or sale of any fireworks. This helps keep our kids safe and reduces the fire hazard presented by fireworks. Just because fireworks are available for sale in other jurisdictions does not legitimize their use within Milliken Town Limits. Please leave the fireworks to the professionals. Police officers will aggressively attempt to identify violators who will be cited and fireworks will be confiscated.
