Denver – Wednesday, September 2, 2020 – Last night, at around 9:30 p.m., Denver Police officers observed a small group of people trespassing at the Denver Police Training Academy, located at 2155 N. Akron Way. The eight individuals listed below were arrested during the incident. The arrestees’ intentions while trespassing remain under investigation.

The group damaged a perimeter fence while illegally entering the Academy grounds and defaced signs, and officers’ quick intervention prevented any further potential damage. 

“If Denver residents have concerns and/or ideas about the future of policing in Denver, we encourage them to contact us and engage in productive dialogue,” said Denver Police Chief Paul Pazen. “However, reckless efforts to harm people and property in our city are inexcusable and will not be tolerated.”
