Park rangers, officers & public health officials will be patrolling parks, recreational areas, businesses & neighborhoods.

“The Denver Police Department will enforce the stay-at-home order with a focus on officer discretion and sound judgement, educating residents about the order, and gaining voluntary compliance,” officials stated.

    How does that work for all the homeless on the streets that this liberal mayor doesn’t seem to care about?

    any judge that enforces the fine should be disbarred. Make the governor declare marital law, like everyone was saying trump would do before this pandemic.
