Edgewater News Story on shooting of 13 year old

National Night Out

National Night Out is Tuesday, August 2, 2016 and we always encourage residents to acknowledge the night and the original goal which was to have neighborhoods gathering one night a year to celebrate their power to control community events, and to leave their porch light on that evening.

Having been a part of the NNO program for over 30 years I have found it best to collaborate with programs within cities that are already active and sustainable, and within the City of Edgewater the program that best fits the time of year and a successful neighborhood program is our Community Picnic on Saturday August 27, from 6 – 9 PM.

On that date and time your Police Department will celebrate the goals of NNO with residents while meeting neighbors and providing information and updates on the programs that contribute to community safety.

Walk Like MADD

Mothers Against Drunk Driving, MADD are hosting a fundraising event Walk Like MADD at Sloan’s Lake on Saturday, August 6, beginning at 9 AM. This 5k event is a leisurely walk for a good cause, and not a race. The Edgewater Police Department will have a team participating in the event and encourage neighbors to join us!

For further information please visit their website here.

Stolen Vehicles

No stolen vehicles reported this week.

Vehicle Break-Ins

The Nextdoor site reported multiple unlocked vehicles being entered during night time hours although there were no reports to Dispatch.

Two Ideas:
1. We understand that it’s time consuming to complete a report, but we need those reports to assist in addressing the issue – we will work towards an online reporting system shortly to assist in the time it takes for our neighbors to complete a report.
2. Lock your cars and keep your valuables out of sight.


There were four DUI arrests this past week within Edgewater. Arrested for DUI:

19 year old male Denver resident.
21 year old female Denver resident.
26 year old male Edgewater resident.
34 year old male Arvada resident.


Edgewater Officers received two reports of shoplifting at local stores this report period.

29 year old male Denver resident.

Thank You Notes from Neighbors – Kudo’s

Thank you to our outstanding police volunteers, Frank Kyper, Lorenzo Rendon and Dave Suter for the countless hours they are contributing to making our community and city a safer place to live, work and play! Chief Mackey

A gentleman stopped by the office on 7/26 as he had been arrested on Saturday 7/23 – the gentleman wanted officers to know that he was “sorry for being a drunk jerk and rude, and God bless the Officers”.

A note of thanks from neighbors on Ingalls St – We want you to know we appreciate all you do for Edgewater!

Neighbor’s notes and “Kudo’s” are placed in the lobby of the police station and placed in the respective officer’s personnel files – thanks for sharing!
