DENVER – Mayor Michael B. Hancock released the following statement today regarding the signing of HB-1191, the State Medina Alert Bill, into law:
“Thank you to the Governor and State Legislature for bringing this important public safety tool to a statewide level. The Medina Alert will work to galvanize the entire community to assist law enforcement in the search, reporting and apprehension of a suspect or vehicle involved in a hit-and-run. With the Colorado State Patrol and Colorado Bureau of Investigation as partners in this effort, we will now be even more successful.
“Since 2012, through the Medina Alert program, Denver, Aurora and Arapahoe County have been able to coordinate our resources to effectively address these careless crimes. Yet another fine example of the region coming together to get things done. We look forward to the opportunities that lie ahead to collaborate statewide efforts that will enhance safety in our communities.”
