Edgewater Police Report: 1/21 – 2/3/2018

From Edgewater Police Department:

1/21 – 2/3/2018

We have a New Neighborhood Watch Block Captain in District 4 – Fox District with Officer Robenalt! 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.

Free Clubs – Honda Civics and Honda Accords years 2010 and older account for almost half of our stolen vehicles in metro Denver. The Edgewater Police Department still has a few Auto Theft Prevention “Clubs” that we would like to give away to any Edgewater resident that own either an older Honda Accord or Civic. Please call Nancy Maldonado at 720-763-3013 if you’re interested in a free “Club” – we have a limited quantity.

Radar Trailer

The Police Department is in need of a volunteer to assist with the Radar Trailer. If you’re interested in assisting with traffic speed control in your community we are in need of additional volunteers for this program – please contact Frank Kyper at the Volunteer email address listed (Volunteers@Edgewaterpd.com).

Want to make your neighborhood safer?

The Edgewater Police Department’s Nextdoor Beat Cop Program was selected as one of the top 7 programs in the United States by the Nextdoor selection team for 2017. If you’re concerned about crime in your neighborhood there is no better free program available to us than Neighborhood Watch. Neighborhood Watch coordination is nothing more than getting to know your neighbors and passing along information that the police department provides to you about the calls for service in your specific neighborhood.

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 Neighborhood Watch and making your neighborhood safer. Working together we can make a difference in deterring crime – thank you!
