The Colorado Springs and Fountain police departments will be on Accident Alert status from May 7-11, department officials said.
The status change comes as both departments begin an administrative transition to the state’s new crash reporting form, according to a Thursday news release. The new form, developed by the Colorado Department of Transportation, is now mandatory for all of the state’s law enforcement agencies, police said.
During the five-day period, the law enforcement agencies will make sure all previous crash report forms are merged into the new system.
