The City Attorney’s Office Neighborhood Prosecution Team (“NPT”) seeks solutions outside the usual “arrest and prosecute” approach to crime. We believe that proactively engaging the community to address crime in the neighborhood, with neighbors, positively impacts the livability of our great City.
Our team members collaborate with the community, law enforcement, and government agencies to address issues affecting the livability of our neighborhoods. People living in Denver want and deserve the highest quality of life in their neighborhoods. Examples of some NPT programs are: leading a Motel Task Force uniting multiple city agencies in a cooperative effort to proactively tackle persistent problem motel properties not just individual crimes; the “Adopt-a-Dumpster” program; partnering with the DPD Homeless Outreach Team to brainstorm solutions to the unique problems that surround the homeless population; and adopting an alley in the Ballpark Neighborhood to help keep it graffiti-free.

The Prosecution and Code Enforcement Section has taken a leadership role in the metro-Denver community to better address crimes against elders. We manage the Justice Program for Older Adults, the Denver Forensic Collaborative for At-Risk Adults, and offer free trainings across the state on how to better investigate and respond to abuse in later life.
To learn more about how you can become involved in the Justice Program for Older Adults or to attend an upcoming training on elder abuse prevention, e-mail CityAttorney.Prosecution@denvergov.org
Prosecution and Code Enforcement Section staff are leaders in the classroom offering instruction to Denver 5th graders helping the students to: learn how the criminal justice system works, strengthen their decision-making skills, and gain exposure to the various careers within the criminal justice system. In the 2013-14 school year, PACE is working with nearly 60 students from Howell Elementary School in Montbello.
