Curt Williams shared stories and changes he's seen in law enforcement over the past four decades as a Denver policeman and investigator with Colorado Bureau of Investigation at a Friends of the Cedaredge Library presentation "I Was an Agent for the CBI." He graduated in 1971 and worked with the Denver Police Department for 33 years. After retiring and moving to Cedaredge, the CBI approached him about being an investigator.

"I thought western Colorado would be more 'stole your cow' investigations but there's nothing different than in Denver," he said.

The changes he's seen over the years were mostly from technology, such as getting walkie talkies and moving from handwritten reports to typed. Interestingly he noted that during his time with DPD he saw homicides move from domestic cases to gang violence. Narcotic cases have also changed. Previously, meth was the main culprit. He said marijuana, because of tax evasion for example, is now what keeps investigators busy.
