OCR can provide you with a photo ID badge to grant expedited access to courts in some (but not all) judicial districts. This may also facilitate entry into schools and other locations. Contact info@coloradochildrep.org to request a badge from OCR. Include a photo if you want the badge mailed to you; otherwise you can visit Denver to take a photo and pick up your badge.
