The city is gradually moving from an emergency response phase into one of relief and recovery. As of Wednesday, May 6, 2020, face coverings are mandatory while inside of or waiting in line to enter any retail or commercial business, or any location or facility offering government of health care services, and waiting for or riding on public transportation.

On May 9, 2020, many businesses will be allowed to re-open with 50% of employees if able to maintain six-foot physical distancing, abide by the face-covering order and other guidelines.

Everyone is urged to stay at home unless absolutely necessary. We know this is a big ask of our residents and businesses, but it is a necessary step to ensure the health and safety of our community.

Traffic Safety is a Shared Responsibility!

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.
