The State of Denver Public Safety: A Continuing Crisis in Failed Leadership

Increasing violent crime, civil unrest and terror threats have made the safety of our communities the primary concern of many. Sadly Denver has not been immune from the trend of increasing crime. As reported recently by the media, all Denver neighborhoods witnessed an across the board increase in property and violent crime. Homicide in Denver is at a 10 year high.

Equally alarming are the attacks against law enforcement officers. The last three months have seen an unprecedented level of violence toward police officers with 14 Colorado Police Officers shot performing their duties. In a three day period in February we witnessed the third Denver Police Officer shot in 2016, a Mesa County Deputy murdered, and three Park County Deputies shot, one tragically being killed.
