Colorado State Patrol & Law Enforcement Accepting Colorado Digital ID
Colorado is the first state in the nation to offer residents the option to electronically transmit digital identification, vehicle registration and proof of insurance to law enforcement! Colorado State Patrol (CSP) and more than a dozen local law enforcement agencies accept the Colorado Digital ID as proof of identity, age and address. The state is actively engaging with other local police and sheriff’s offices as they begin accepting Digital ID.
Law Enforcement Agencies Accepting Digital ID
Until full acceptance of the Digital ID is available at all local and state jurisdictions, residents should carry their physical driver license or state identification cards wherever they go.

When do law enforcement agencies need to start accepting Colorado Digital ID?
In an Executive Order issued by Governor Polis on Oct. 30, 2019, by Nov. 30, 2020 the Office of Information Technology (OIT) was required to provide a technical solution that allows state law enforcement to accept Digital ID. He encouraged state and local law enforcement agencies to accept the Digital ID by Nov. 30 to allow for cross-jurisdictional use of the Digital ID in law enforcement and public safety situations. Colorado State Patrol is the first law enforcement agency to accept the Digital ID. Many local police departments and sheriff's offices are also starting to accept it.
