Trick or...More Tricks First Mother Nature tricks us with a cold snowy Halloween, then the Denver Broncos trick us by trading Demaryius Thomas to the Houston Texans. DT will take the field in Denver Sunday wearing a Texans jersey. He's going to get a bigger round of applause than the guy giving out full size candy bars tomorrow night. Be sure to wear bright costumes and only cross streets at the cross walk so tomorrow is a day of treats. I think we've all had enough of these "tricks."

A fantastic story on the University of Denver's website about Parker Police Department Detective Tyler Herman and his role in how our department helps those with mental health issues. “My own understanding of mental illness was shattered,” he says. “You look at those suffering from schizophrenia and bipolar — if you’re not raised around it, you don’t really understand it. And [you won’t] until you challenge your own notion of its existence and you go meet with these folks. … Then I realized, on the street we’re coming into contact with some very sick folks. We need to not only listen to them but know how to get them the help that they need, recognizing that the law enforcement is not intended [to solve] the world’s problems, but we are problem solvers.” https://www.du.edu/news/daniels-student-leads-police-response-mental-health-challenges

Last year 67 young people between the ages of 15 and 20 were killed in traffic crashes in Colorado. This is a 22 percent increase from 2016 when 55 were killed and the highest number of fatalities for that age group since 2008. Teen drivers are among the most dangerous drivers on the road. To encourage them to drive safer, the Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT) is launching a safety campaign aimed at increasing awareness of Colorado’s Graduated Driver Licensing (GDL) program, foster adherence of GDL restrictions and ultimately save teen lives. Colorado first adopted a Graduated Driver Licensing law in 1999 after a horrific crash in Greeley that killed four teenagers. The 16-year-old driver had just received his license. He had little experience driving when his friends jumped in his car, and he ran a stop sign. GDL laws help teens gain important driving skills gradually while putting restrictions on the number of passengers permitted, banning cell phone use, setting a curfew and requiring driver education. According to the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment, half of all unintentional injury deaths for Coloradans between ages 5 and 24 are due to motor vehicle crashes.
