Brighton Police Department Update

The police department’s D.A.R.E. instructors have started teaching D.A.R.E. in Brighton elementary schools.

The Brighton Police Department has been
dedicated to the D.A.R.E. program since 1987. Former Officer Neil Martinez
was the first Brighton Police Officer to teach D.A.R.E., 25 years ago. Our
current D.A.R.E. Officers are Sgt. Micah Acker, Officer Ron Rodriguez, Officer
Alex Covarrubias and Officer Francisco Alba.

 Brighton police are investigating the roadside death of a local man as a possible
hit-and-run accident. A passerby called 9-1-1 just before midnight on Saturday,
August 25, after finding 19-year-old Shane Michael Hale injured and unconscious
in a roadside ditch near 120th Ave. and Peoria St., in Brighton. Hale was
airlifted to an area hospital, where he later died. This case is still under investigation
by Detective Corporal Dennis McGee.

 On Wednesday, August 29, the police department and the Brighton Fire Rescue
District held interviews for the Emergency Manager position. Seven qualified
candidates were interviewed at the police department.
