Police Department - Golden Colorado

The Golden Police Deparment has just released their first newsletter, and there’s a lot of good information in it, including the police blotter, which allows you to read about specific calls to the police. They’re also going to be offering a Golden Safety Academy, starting tomorrow night and meeting once a month through December.  This year’s Citizen’s Police Academy will start on August 23rd. Applications are due by August 8th.  I haven’t participated in the Academy, but my husband was in one of the early classes. He particularly enjoyed the ride-alongs with officers, the shooting range, and driving a cop car at high speed around the track on South Table Mountain.
