Arvada Police Offering Sector-Specific Crime Prevention Classes

Arvada, Colorado – For the first time, the Arvada Police Department is offering sector-specific crime prevention classes to better address the needs and crime issues associated with various parts of Arvada.

 

“As we grow our sector-based policing knowledge, we are able to hone in on the crimes trends and issues specific to different areas of the City,” said Sgt. DeAndrea, who oversees the Community Response Impact Team (CRIT) that teaches the classes. “Because of this, we want to offer crime prevention classes and crime-free multi-housing classes that are pertinent to the people who live and work in the different sectors.”

 

Crime Prevention Classes

Sector-specific Crime Prevention Classes will be offered on the following dates/times:

ADAM SECTOR (64th Avenue to 88th Avenue, and Sheridan Blvd to Kipling St.)
Thursday, March 26
6 p.m. to 8 p.m.
Lake Arbor Community Station, 8110 Vance Drive

BAKER SECTOR (I-70 to 64th Avenue, Sheridan, to Kipling St)
Thursday, May 21
6 p.m. to 8 p.m.

CHARLIE SECTOR (52nd Avenue to 95th Avenue, Kipling St to Hwy 93)
Tuesday, September 15
6 p.m. to 8 p.m.

Previously offered only twice a year, the Crime Prevention Class gives homeowners important tips designed to keep them and their homes safe. Topics covered include reporting a crime, vacation safety tips, protecting your neighborhood and how to be a good witness among others. Each session includes a Q&A session. 

The sector-specific class will also cover crime and statistics specific to each sector, issues that may need to be addressed and address sector-resident concerns.

Crime Free Multi-Housing Classes

In addition to the Crime Prevention Class for individuals, CRIT is offering multi-unit rental property and business owners the opportunity to participate in sector-specific crime prevention classes. These classes will be:

The class explains ways to work with police to make rental properties safer. Other topics covered include gang activity, graffiti and narcotics. Members of CRIT will be available to answer questions specific to each sector.
