Crime and Safety

In July, 2013, jurisdiction of the La Alma-Lincoln Park neighborhood was shifted from Police District 6 (downtown Denver) to Police District 1 (northwest Denver). District 6’s priorities were long dominated by the activity in and concerns of the Central Business District and Lo Do area, whereas District 1 is compromised of primarily residential, mixed-use neighborhoods like ours. Under District 1, we have enjoyed increased outreach and citizen engagement from officers at all levels of the department and increased funding for their focusing on our concerns. We’re lucky to have Commander Pazen looking out for La Alma-Lincoln Park.

Add these numbers to your speed dial:

  • For crimes in progress: 911
