Find Sex Offenders in the La Junta Area:
The La Junta Police Department has recently entered into an agreement with the Douglas County Sheriffs Office to use their Sex Offender Tracking And Registration(SOTAR) software. This brings a lot of benefits to the department and the community. Prior to this we had to rely on the State of Colorado website and third party vendors as a means to inform the public of sex offenders in the area. With this upgrade, when an officer updates an offenders status or information it is instantly available on the internet. Please click the button to the right to access the public side of SOTAR.
The City of La Junta has instituted the CodeRED Emergency Notification System. Click on the above images to link to the website or to download the CodeRED Mobile APP.
