How to Get Involved

Community group involvement keeps you informed about the specific issues and important events in your neighborhood. Crime prevention in your specific neighborhood can be molded by your active role in the decision-making process often spearheaded by organized neighborhood associations. 

The Community Advisory Board (CAB) meeting is designed for your community. Not only do you hear about the statistics for the entire district, you also get to ask the Commander your specific questions. It’s a great opportunity to meet your local Denver Police officers, while staying informed. 

District 2 CAB meetings are held at 1st Wednesday of each month at the district station (excluding holidays). The scheduled dates for 2024 are: March 6th, April 3rd, May 1st, June 5th, July 3rd, September 4th, October 2nd, November 6th, and December 4th.  If you would like an ASL interpreter, please email us at 2.Dist@denvergov.org at least three business days prior to the meeting. Meeting reminders are posted on Nextdoor.com.

Community Resource Officers

Community Resource Officers (CRO) provide assistance on issues such as neighbor disputes, public nuisances, zoning issues, fraud and crime prevention, and other neighborhood concerns. They attend regular neighborhood organization meetings and provide training on issues such as neighborhood watch, commercial and home security, gang awareness, crime prevention, and much more.

School Resource Officers

School Resource Officers (SRO) are Denver police officers assigned to Denver Public High Schools. While safety, in and around the school, is of the upmost importance for the SRO, so is connecting with students, families, and staff to build and foster positive relationships. Together, we strive to maintain a secure and nurturing space for education to thrive.

Officer Wolfe recognizes the challenges high school and life can present to students, and thinks that his role as an SRO provides an opportunity to connect with students and help them the best he can. As someone who recently completed his first marathon, you may see Officer Wolfe running as he trains for his next one.

Officer Ramona Barraza - Manual High School

Officer Mona Barraza is excited to be a part of the Manual High School (MHS) community where she brings 17 years of law enforcement experience. Prior to joining DPD, Officer Barraza worked at alternative schools where she built positive relationships with students and their families. She is committed doing just that at MHS and looks forward to enhancing safety while connecting with students, their families, and the school staff. Officer Barraza moved from Mexico to the United States/Colorado at an early age, and that lived experience, along with speaking Spanish, will help in her role as SRO. In her free time, Officer Barraza enjoys playing sports, as well as long hikes, fishing, and everything that the Colorado outdoors has to offer.

Outreach Case Coordinator

The Outreach Case Coordinator (OCC) program is part of DPD's commitment to approaching public safety services with a focus on helping to address the needs of our residents. This is accomplished by providing long-term connections to available services and supports. Clients could include community members who are experiencing substance misuse, behavioral health issues, homelessness or needing housing system navigation, immigrant and refugee system navigation, human services navigation, and many others.

What does an Outreach Case Coordinator Do?

  • Build a bridge between the community and the Denver Police Department
  • Provide educational material that highlights service providers to individuals who are in need
  • Assist individuals and families with finding available services
  • Help identify the individual's goals and needs
  • Maintain communication with individuals to evaluate the plan to ensure it is meeting the client's goals
