AURORA, Colorado - Having a peaceful demonstration is most meaningful when everyone chooses to be respectful, law-abiding, and civil.  It’s equally important to realize everyone has a right to lawfully assemble, and Colorado law prohibits disrupting a lawful assembly.  The goal with this advisory is to provide helpful information for those planning on attending the protest or support rally at the ICE Detention Center in Aurora on September 21, 2019.

Free Speech is Important: The APD values citizens’ free speech rights.  Freedom of Speech includes a variety of expressive words, printed words, and expressive conduct. However, there are limits. For example, “Fighting Words,” or words that are inherently likely to provoke a violent reaction or a breach of the peace through retaliation, are not protected by the First Amendment.  Additionally, criminal conduct, such as theft and destruction of another’s property or physical assault of another person, is not protected by the First Amendment.  We ask for the public’s help in ensuring that the event remains a place for free speech and lawful activity.

To Get Information Day-Of: To receive incident response information, attendees can opt-in to text messages from APD during this event by sending a text to the number 474747 with APDINFO in the body of the text.  Additionally, APD will be using Twitter for similar messaging to the public and media.

This checkpoint is part of the DUI Checkpoint Colorado program, which kicks off Memorial Day weekend continuing through Labor Day weekend, and will include more than 100 checkpoints statewide by 11 participating agencies. This checkpoint will be located on Peoria St.

Motorists passing through the checkpoint will be contacted briefly by an officer who will be looking for signs of intoxication and/or impairment in the driver. The checkpoint should cause only minor inconvenience to traffic along the targeted roadway, and highly visible signage will be posted leading into the checkpoint screening area. Drivers entering a checkpoint are asked to pay close attention to the officers directing traffic through the area. Motorists should also roll down their drivers’ side window as they approach the screening area. This allows for better communication between the motorist and the officer, quicker screening and a shorter delay overall.

The checkpoint is funded by an N.H.T.S.A. (National Highway Transportation Safety Administration) grant in partnership with the “Heat is On” campaign and administered by the Colorado Department of Transportation.
The APD Traffic Section will also have a dozen or so officers out of the streets conducting DUI Saturation Patrols, specifically looking for impaired drivers.

Cache   

On Wednesday February 15, 2017 at approximately 2:30 a.m., Aurora Police Officers responded to the area of a tattoo shop located at 3095 S. Peoria St.  Officers responded in an attempt to locate a suspect who was wanted by the Federal Heights Police Department for domestic violence related charges.  The suspect, who is identified as John Arthur Thomas (DOB 07/21/1971), was believed to be at this location by the Federal Heights Police Department.  Officers eventually observed Thomas at approximately 4:45 a.m. outside of the tattoo shop and the suspect retreated inside of the business.

After contact was established with Thomas inside the business, Thomas eventually surrendered without incident and members of the Federal Heights Police Department took custody of Thomas.

As a result of this incident, S. Peoria St. was closed between E. Cornell Ave. and S Parker Rd. but the road was reopened at approximately 11:00 a.m.

Pedestrian versus Train Accident

APD Case 17-6674
February 19, 2017 at 2:07 PM
E. 30th Ave & N. Peoria St 

  On February 19, 2017 at about 2:07 PM, Aurora Police and Fire responded to E. 30th Ave & N. Peoria St. on a report of a pedestrian being struck by a RTD light rail train on the R line.  There they found that a 35 year old Asian male had been struck and was unresponsive.  He was transported to a local hospital where he was declared deceased.

  The investigation thus far indicates that the male was walking east on the north side of 30th, west towards the light rail tracks.  The oncoming light rail train, which was in training operation with no passengers, was traveling south.  The safety equipment at the crossing was activated to include the arms that stop vehicular traffic on the roadway, pedestrian gates and illuminated signs with the international symbol for “Don’t Walk”.

  For an unknown reason, the pedestrian ignored the warnings, pushed through the gate and into the path of the light rail train.  The train operator immediately activated the emergency braking system but was unable to stop before striking the male. It appears that the male was hearing impaired and possible intoxication is also a factor being investigated at this time.

  The Aurora Police Traffic Unit will conduct the investigation in coordination with the Adams County Coroner’s Office, who will release the identity of the male at a later date.

NATURE: Roadside Sobriety Checkpoint- Friday June 23rd, 2017


Aurora, Colorado- The Aurora Police Department will be conducting a Stationary Roadside Sobriety Checkpoint on Friday June 23rd, 2017 from 10:00 p.m. to 3:00 a.m. This is part of our continuing commitment to the statewide effort to combat drunk drivers and reduce alcohol related traffic accidents and fatalities. This checkpoint is part of the DUI Checkpoint Colorado program, which kicks off Memorial Day weekend continuing through Labor Day weekend. This checkpoint will be located on Peoria St.

Motorists passing through the checkpoint will be contacted briefly by an officer who will be looking for signs of intoxication and/or impairment in the driver. The checkpoint should cause only minor inconvenience to traffic along the targeted roadway, and highly visible signage will be posted leading into the checkpoint screening area. Drivers entering a checkpoint are asked to pay close attention to the officers directing traffic through the area. Motorists should also roll down their drivers’ side window as they approach the screening area. This allows for better communication between the motorist and the officer, quicker screening and a shorter delay overall.

The checkpoint is funded by an N.H.T.S.A. (National Highway Transportation Safety Administration) grant in partnership with the “Heat is On” campaign and administered by the Colorado Department of Transportation.

Please contact Traffic Section Commander, Lt. Michael McClelland with any questions.
