The City Attorney’s Office is not the custodian of records and does not process CORA requests for other agencies or offices in the City and County of Denver. Please send requests for records to the agency custodian directly.

The City Attorney's Office accepts CORA requests for records by email at CAO.CORAREQUEST@denvergov.org. This includes CCJRA requests for its Prosecution and Code Enforcement section.

A CORA request received after 3 p.m., or any day the agency is officially closed, will be considered received on the following working day.
