In partnership with the community, the Denver Police Department strives to operate a police agency focused on preventing crime in a respectful manner, demonstrating that everyone matters. About Chief Pazen
Traffic Crashes are avoidable and traffic safety is a shared responsibility.
The Denver Police Department is committed to Denver’s Vision Zero goal and is increasing the number of traffic police officers to educate and enforce traffic violations. Using a data-driven approach, officers will be deployed in areas where there are a high number of crashes.
The top fatal crash factors include speed, impaired driving, aggressive driving, distracted driving, and not wearing seat belts. Motorists are reminded to follow the speed limit, designate a sober driver, stay calm and do not show displeasure to other drivers, don’t text and drive, and always wear your seat belt.
Please Note: Vehicle crash reporting is for Colorado Department of Revenue records only. No law enforcement agency will be investigating these reports, and the Denver Police Department will not able to provide you with a copy of any submitted report.
The Denver Police Department is looking for talented, qualified civilians to join our team! For more information, please visit our jobs page.
