Traffic Issues

84 MPH in a 35MPH ZONE – On the morning of 5/2 Corporal Nesbitt was monitoring traffic along southbound Sheridan when he observed a black sedan traveling at a high rate of speed estimated at over 75MPH. The radar gun clocked the vehicle at 84 in a 35MPH zone and Corporal Nesbitt caught up and met with a 23 year old Wheat Ridge resident who indicated that he was “late for work”. As the driver was operating illegally under a revoked license he was issued an assortment of tickets and will be visiting with our local judge shortly!

Nextdoor and Neighborhood Watch are Growing!

Our tremendous volunteer, Lorenzo Rendon has done an exceptional job in his first year as Neighborhood Watch Coordinator. Lorenzo has spoken to many of you and is arranging block meetings for this spring. As we begin to identify and sign our Neighborhood Watch Blocks, we will also begin the process of comparing crime statistics in Watch Blocks compared to all other blocks. The NW program has historically been extremely successful in deterring crime, and I’m certain it will do the same for Edgewater. Our Edgewater Police Department Volunteers are researching methods to increase our Neighborhood Watch participation and participation in Nextdoor Edgewater. Both of these programs allow us to communicate more efficiently with residents for civic events and crime prevention purposes. Please consider inviting your neighbors to participate in Nextdoor Edgewater and contacting our Neighborhood Watch Coordinator Lorenzo – volunteers@edgewaterpd.com  to get more information on making your neighborhood safer.
