SUN Outreach/Block Captain Minutes

Denver PD Technician Amy Esten:

-          In the past month, there has been a lot of theft from Motor Vehicles, most in Northfield, which is grouped in with Stapleton as far as statistics go. Only 3 at actual residences. Be sure to keep locking up vehicles.

-          Primary Stapleton issue currently is construction thefts on new construction. DPD is discussing the possibility of private security with builders and Forest City.

-          When reporting an issue, for quickest response, always tell the police you are willing to be contacted when you call.

-          For those blocks who have not had a Neighborhood Watch meeting, the time needed is approx. 45 min and they can contact Technician Esten to set up a time Mon – Thurs, no later than 6pm
