Don't let "little problems" get out of hand!

Let us help settle the dispute!

The Granby Police Department offers a Citizen Dispute Resolution Program to hear and try to resolve issues between residents in a peaceful way. Disputes submitted to the Panel will be discussed and reviewed in an orderly impartial manner. All parties will have a chance to "tell their side" and hear the other side. Hopefully you can resolve the "problem" yourselves! The panel will make a recommendation to settle the dispute to the satisfaction of those involved.
