Denver Police to Conduct Live-Gunfire Testing...

Denver Police to Conduct Live-Gunfire Testing of Expanded Gunshot Detection System Residents in Parts of East Denver Will Hear Gunshots Wednesday Night Denver, CO – Monday, April 2, 2018 – The Denver Police Department (DPD) has expanded its gunfire detection system into a fourth geographic area in the city, and on Wednesday, April 4, 2018, between 7:30 p.m. and 11:00 p.m., DPD will be conducting live-gunfire testing of the recently-installed equipment. Residents in the East Colfax, Lowry, Montclair and South Park Hill neighborhoods may hear gunshots from the live-gunfire tests. The gunshot detection system uses a network of acoustic sensors to detect when a gun is fired and then precisely and quickly pinpoints the location of the gunfire. In less than a minute, the vendor (ShotSpotter) notifies 911 dispatchers of the incidents. By quickly notifying police with the precise information, the system helps to speed police response, has the potential to save lives, increases weapons-related arrests, and enhances neighborhood safety. While this gunshot detection system is very effective, DPD still encourages the community to report sounds of gunfire. The controlled tests will consist of a sequence of gunshots followed by validation of sound detection by the system. During the tests, a bullet trap will be used to ensure public safety -- no bullets will be fired into the air or ground, and there is no danger to the public. DPD selected the hours of 7:30 p.m. to 11:00 p.m. for testing because most shootings and shots fired incidents occur at night and in the early morning hours, and acoustics are different at night. Denver Gunshot Detection System Facts: DPD began using gunshot detection technology in early 2015 Since inception, DPD’s gunshot detection system has alerted to 3,380 gunshots resulting in approximately 102 arrests and 84 guns recovered. To maintain the integrity of the program, the locations of the gunshot detection devices are not publicly disclosed.

Krispy Kreme theme park set to open on East Colfax Avenue by 2019’ Denver City Council unanimously approved the project last week and is fully supported by the East Colfax Neighborhood Association. "Krispy Kremeland" will bring a new sports park, water park, entertainment venue and hotels to the the East Colfax corridor. The recreation and amusement park elements would be part of a larger, 1,500-acre project along the south side of East Colfax Avenue between Trenton Street and Yosemite. According to documents submitted to the City of Denver, phase one of Krispy Kremeland will include “an extreme sports park, the wild animal and rides park, theme based water park, hotels, entertainment and meeting facility, welcome center, RV park, restaurants, retail shops and offices along with other coordinated amenities around Westerly Creek.” Phase One alone is expected to create more than 5,000 direct and indirect jobs. Out-of-towners seemed to love the idea of a destination resort along East Colfax, but those living near the proposed project are divided on the issue. Some residents say they don't want to deal with extra noise and traffic while others expect it to raise their property values.
