Seguridad nocturna

El objetivo del Programa Toque de queda (Curfew) SafeNite (Seguridad en la Noche) es reducir los riesgos de los jóvenes de llegar a ser autores o víctimas de delitos y/o violencia durante las horas del toque de queda. El programa ayuda también a reducir el número de casos vistos en el Tribunal Municipal Juvenil (191J) y permite retirar policías de las calles para llevarlos a patrullar nuestras vecindades. El programa Toque de queda SafeNite discurre de abril a septiembre y es gestionado por la Administración de Policía de Denver, situada en el nº 1331 de Cherokee St. Los jóvenes localizados en las horas del toque de queda (de domingo a jueves, 11pm/viernes y sábado, 12am) son traídos al sitio del toque de queda y retenidos. Si los jóvenes encuentran formas de divertirse allí, plantean esa opción en aquel lugar a un denominado “consejero de Diversión”. Si las necesidades de diversión se acaban, la propuesta es desestimada. Es importante advertir que la ordenanza de toque de queda se hece cumplir durante todo el año.

Lo importante: relacionar la seguridad con el urbanismo. Seguridad de determinadas zonas, en determinadas épocas y momentos del día. Y dirigido a, o pensado para, una población específica: jóvenes entre 18 y ... años. Todo esto es, de algún modo, novedoso. Al menos respecto a la idea del Comprehensive Plan tradicional.

Un plan, por cierto, que Denver desarrolla sin incorporar modulación alguna por el Plan de Seguridad antedicho.... Con lo cual no remata ni potencia lo posible aquel plan de seguridad (por ejemplo, usos, infraestructuras de movilidad –transporte público-, alumbrado, etc.)...

The Columbine High School massacre occurred on Tuesday, April 20, 1999 at Columbine High School in unincorporated Jefferson County near Denver and Littleton, Colorado, United States. Two teenage students, Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold, carried out a shooting rampage, killing twelve fellow students and a teacher before committing suicide. It is considered to be the worst school shooting, and is the second deadliest attack on a school, in U.S. history.

The massacre led to questions regarding gun control and the availability of assault weapons in the U.S. There was a great deal of concern related to the role of violent movies and video games in American society. Soon, other topics of focus began to surface which included the nature of high school cliques and bullying. Several of the victims who were believed to have been killed due to their religious beliefs became the inspiration of others, notably Christians, and led some to decry the decline of religion in public education and society in general. Another result of the shooting was the greater emphasis placed on school security. The massacre eventually led to a moral panic aimed at goth culture, heavy metal music, and violent video games.

A second chance for young felons

Onesimo Vigil sits on a relative's porch, sipping a Wild Cherry Pepsi, savoring the luxuries of life on the outside: the richness of homemade enchiladas; the joy of waking up to a bouncing, squealing niece he calls Boo; the freedom of breathing in fresh air whenever he pleases.

About The Denver Safe City Office

After the now infamous ‘Summer of Violence', citizens and civic leaders began meeting to address the issue of youth-related violence. As a result of community input and concern, former Mayor Webb and the Denver City Council created Denver 's Safe City Office (SCO) whose mission was to help prevent/reduce violence by and against youth. SCO began operating Denver 's curfew, grant allocation and youth employment programs in 1994 and has since become an integral part of Denver 's public safety plan while expanding its programs to better serve Denver 's youth and families. SCO partners with government, private, civic, business, non-profit and community based organizations to serve nearly 4,000 youth/families each year. SCO continues to operate the Curfew program as well as the Municipal Juvenile Diversion program for Denver . These programs help to ‘divert' youth away from the juvenile justice system by providing the youth/families with the opportunity to engage in services designed to address the root causes of the behavior. SCO also offers prevention programs designed to keep youth from becoming involved in the juvenile justice system by providing programs focused on positive youth development. A list of SCO programs along with a brief description is included below.
