Civil Disturbance

Should a riot or civil disturbance start outside the Building, the security guards will immediately lock all entrances to the building. The police will be notified. We will keep you informed. If a disturbance should occur in the main lobby, all elevators will be turned off at the first floor and the police will be summoned.


Civil disturbances are not easily categorized. Depending on the organization responsible for the disturbance, they may range from calm groups of picketers to violent destructive mobs. Frequently, calm groups escalate to violent mobs. Eliminating the threat of violence and destruction is the goal of this section. Often, political interest groups, disgruntled employees and striking employees will let it be known that they intend to demonstrate, picket, etc., at a certain location. Should you receive such information, please communicate it to the Shorenstein Realty Services Management Office immediately. It is recommended that tenants develop their own Civil Disturbance Action Plan to inform and safeguard their employees.


In the event of a disturbance, the following procedures should be followed:

  • Call the Police and state:

  • Your name and company name.

  • Location of the disturbance.

  • Size of the group.

  • Type of demonstration.

  • Call the Shorenstein Realty Services Management Office at 303 295 6200 with the same information.

  • Instruct employees to avoid communicating with the demonstrators, antagonizing the demonstrators or aggravating the situation in any way.

The necessity of evacuating is not probable; however, should evacuation be deemed necessary by the tenant, assistance will be given to the tenant by the building’s Emergency Action Team.
