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 Commander's 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.
The Commander’s Meetings are held at 6:00 pm on the 3rd Thursday of the odd numbered months at different locations throughout the district. If you would like an ASL interpreter, please email us at 5.Dist@denvergov.org at least three business days prior to the meeting. Meeting reminders are posted on Nextdoor.com.
