State Employee ID Badge Program

Fast, inexpensive, convenient, and secure, the State ID Badge Program is designed to meet the needs of State employees, their managers, authorized HR representatives, and independent State contractors. The State ID Badge Program allows easy access to State facilities and accommodates agencies' needs to provide access to secure areas.

NOTICE UPDATE: As of December 09, 2020, we will no longer mail badges to individual home addresses. We will send them to the Department's Human Resources via interoffice or available for you to pick up.

Badge Application Process

State Employees

Only HR Representatives and their delegates can access the official State ID Badge website to request employee badges. To obtain a State Employee ID Badge:

  1. Contact your agency HR Representative to request an ID Badge.
  2. Within 24 hours, the HR Representative will receive an email confirmation authorizing the ID badge.
  3. Bring a copy of the e-mail confirmation and a picture ID to 1525 Sherman St., Room #B15 between 7:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. on weekdays to obtain your badge. The badge program is closed for lunch between 12:00 p.m. and 1:00 p.m. No badges will be issued during this time.
  4. For security purposes, a badge request will expire 60 days from the date that the request was accepted by the ID Badge Administrator. After 60 days, a new badge request will be required.


Contractors that are required by a State agency to obtain an ID badge must have passed a background check within the previous six months.

Standard contractor ID badges are $3.00 each (Checks Only). Contractor access badges allow contractors to gain entry to approved State facilities with a simple swipe of the badge against a card reader, these access badges cost $10.00 each (Checks Only)If the contractor is liable for the cost of the badge, they must pay with check upon receipt of the badge. If the contracting agency is going to cover the cost of the badge, it will be included in the monthly ID Badge billing, and the agency will be charged via IT.

Secure Access Codes

If a contractor needs a code to access a State building, an Application for Security Access Code should be completed and submitted to the Colorado State Patrol. Forms are also available by calling 303-866-3660.

  • To gain access to the Colorado State Patrol's ASACK system, you must use your State email address through the State's VPN connection or be logged into your computer through a State network

  • Agency Name
  • Agency Code
