Our friends from The Blue Bench will be in our community again tonight.

On Thursday, Nov. 29, the 17th Judicial District Sexual Assault Response Team, in partnership with the Brighton PD, will host a free screening of “I am Evidence” at The Armory Performing Arts Center. Each year, hundreds of thousands of rape evidence kits sit on shelves waiting to be processed. This documentary explores how sexual assault cases have been historically processed in the United States. Following the movie, we will host a live panel with five experts from the community: Brighton Police Chief Paul Southard, City Government of Commerce City Police Chief Clinton Nichols, Dave Young, 17th Judicial District Attorney, The Blue Bench Executive Director Karmen Carter and Nanette DeLancey, the Sex Assault Nurse Examiner Program Supervisor at St. Anthony Hospitals. While the screening is free, seating is limited so you’re encouraged to get your ticket in advance:

Happy Halloween from the Brighton PD. Here are some tips to help everyone stay safe while trick or treating this evening.

UPDATE: We have contacted the author of the original post and his family and have learned that no crime was committed against them. The original post was made from a misunderstanding. ###### We have received several messages reference a Facebook post currently circulating about a family being “robbed at gunpoint” by a male posing as a United Power Employee. We have NOT had any robberies reported to us. If you were a victim of a crime please contact our dispatch center to speak to an officer at 303.288.1535 or 911 in case of emergency.

Our friends from The Blue Bench (formally know as RAAP) will be in our community tonight again, knocking on doors talking about their services and raising funds for their advocacy efforts.
