National Prescription Drug Take Back Day

Yesterday, the Golden Police Department recognized two young members of our community for their heroic actions last week. Eight-year-old Kyleigh and five-year-old Brinley were with their great-grandmother when she had a major medical event. Both girls remained calm and while helping their great-grandmother, used their emergency phone list to call for help. When officers arrived on scene, it was discovered the front door lock was stuck. The girls reacted quickly by opening the garage door so officers and medical personnel could get inside. Sergeant Ryan Custer had the honor of presenting Kyleigh and Brinley with stuffed police bears and a letter of commendation from Chief of Police William Kilpatrick. Chief Kilpatrick wrote, "I wanted to commend you for your actions that day, which were vital in helping your great-grandmother receive the medical care she needed. I am very impressed with how you stayed calm and followed your emergency plans. In fact, I wish most adults would act as calm as you did in such a scary situation." The Golden Police are very proud to have such amazing people in our city.

UPDATE: This weekend, a Golden citizen was contacted by someone claiming to be with the FBI. The citizen was scammed out of a large sum of money. Please be aware, law enforcement, including the Feds, do not cold call citizens and ask for payment or money. If you get a call from someone claiming to be with a law enforcement agency, do not panic. Take a few seconds to collect your thoughts and ask yourself how realistic is this? Here is a link to the FCC with information on how to protect yourself from unwanted calls, texts and faxes. https://www.fcc.gov/consumers/guides/stop-unwanted-calls-texts-and-faxes

FALL IS FAST APPROACHING - This is the time of year when bears will be looking for an easy meal to fatten up for winter. Smaller animals like raccoons and skunks will also seize the opportunity and may get trapped in open trash containers. Please do not entice wildlife. Keep your trash secure by closing the lids on trashcans and dumpsters. #putalidonit.

On September 9th, our DUI/Metro taxi was at 3rd Annual Red Rocks Cancer Center and Colorado Ovarian Cancer Alliance Charity Car Show. This was a fund raiser and all proceeds will benefit low income women under treatment for ovarian cancer. The taxi was a huge hit, especially with other taxis. The day was filled with family fun with a live band, DJ music, contests, giveaways and food.

Here's what's happening in the City of Golden!

COLORADO STATE HIGHWAY 93 MULTI AGENCY ENFORCEMENT - On August 25th, the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office hosted a multi-agency traffic enforcement operation on Colorado State Highway 93. Several law enforcement agencies participated to include the Golden Police Department, Arvada Police Department, Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office and the Boulder County Sheriff’s Office. Each agency worked the section of Highway 93 that was within their jurisdiction. As most of us know, Highway 93 is a dangerous roadway. The goal was to make Highway 93 safer for everyone with police presence and traffic enforcement. Four officers from the Golden Police Department spent four hours on our portion of Highway 93 and issued 23 summons. 12 summonses were for speed along with several for red light violations, following too closely and improper turn across a divided highway. COMBINED AGENCY TOTALS: 129 CITATIONS ISSUED 10-19 Miles per hour over limit 96 20-24 Miles per hour over limit 12 25-39 Miles per hour over limit 3 Red light violations 2 Improper turns 2 Following too close 7 Expired registration 1 Unsafe passing 1 Seat belt violations 2 Littering 1 Lane violations 2

PHONE SCAM ALERT! Our Communication Center has been receiving calls from citizens who claim they received a phone call from us or the FBI. They are reporting our phone number, 303-384-8045, is showing on their Caller ID. During the phone call, the citizens are told they have warrants and to avoid arrest, they must purchase some form of money cards and send them to the caller. We do know of one individual who was scammed out of a large sum of money. First of all, the Golden Police Department will never "cold call" you and say you have a warrant for your arrest. Second, we will never ask you to get money cards and send them to us. Third, our phone numbers are blocked - meaning the number will not show up on your Caller ID. It may show as "Restricted" or something similar, but it will never show up as our actual phone number. PROTECT YOURSELF! Do not fall for these phone scams. If you have any questions, remember the name the "officer" or "agent" gave you, hang up and report the incident to your local police department.
