Update from the Town of Firestone on Park & Open Space Vandalism
Last Friday evening, the Firestone Police Department responded to vandalism at the Harney Park restrooms. Vandals used fireworks to start a fire in the restroom, resulting in hundreds of dollars’ worth of damage. As a result, the restrooms will remain closed until further notice.
The Town of Firestone is committed to keeping the community safe, and this includes working with neighbors to discourage vandalism in Town parks and open spaces. The Town of Firestone has recently made many investments and enhancements to our parks and will continue to do so in the years to come, but we need the community's support to help us maintain them.
Patrol Officers and Community Services Officers will continue to conduct increased foot patrols, and in some locations, monitor surveillance cameras. But we also ask that the public continue to be eyes and ears in these public spaces. Please remember all Firestone parks close one hour after sunset each evening and open again one hour before sunrise the following morning. If you see something suspicious, including vandalism that has occurred, please contact the Firestone Police Department. What is suspicious activity? Suspicious activity is an occurrence that is out of place in your neighborhood. Don’t assume someone else called, if you see something, say something.
Contacting the non-emergency dispatch number (720-652-4222) is the best way to report anything suspicious. While we know many people utilize social media, the Town of Firestone cannot monitor those outlets 24-7 and can be much more responsive when reports are given through the proper channels.
