No Loitering Signs

No Loitering signs with the Pueblo Police logo are now available for purchase through the Community Services Division at the Pueblo Police Department. The signs are 12”x18” in size, aluminum, reflective, with an anti-graffiti film applied for easy clean-up. These signs are to help deter unwanted pedestrian(s) impeding the flow for others around your property. (See city ordinance below for further). The signs are $30.00 each and funds go to the Crime Prevention Unit. Contact Officer Brandon Beauvais at bbeauvais@pueblo.us or 719-553-2484 for more information.
