Message from the Executive Director

September 18, 2000

 

Dear Colleagues:

 

It is my hope that you will find this report, Crime in Colorado 1999, a useful planning tool.  With the dedicated effort of the Colorado Bureau of Investigation's [CBI] Uniform Crime Report staff, Agent Michael Igoe, and Crime Analyst Jennise Rylands, this comprehensive report is possible.  I appreciate the countless hours of labor the CBI provided on this project.

 

While the information contained in this report is the most complete data about Colorado crime data for 1999, I urge that caution is used in comparing them to other related data from federal, local, and state resources as methodologies may differ.

 

This publication provides a useful examination of crime trends, community response to crime, and victimization patterns.  We should take opportunities wherever possible to fight crime in our state and communities.  Reducing crime to much lower levels is a goal for which each of use must strive.  Although overall growth in crime has decreased, it will take our combined energy, skills, knowledge, and resources to make a positive difference in reducing current trends.

 

Please continue to take full advantage of the new law enforcement technology and practices to keep Colorado a safe and peaceful place to live, work, and enjoy.

 

Sincerely,

C. Suzanne Mencer

Executive Director
