Earlier this fall, the Colorado Bureau of Investigation (CBI) and the Uniform Crime Reporting program announced that seven Colorado law enforcement agencies across the entire state had no reporting errors for the National Incident-Based Reporting System (NIBRS). Three of those agencies are in Delta County -- Delta Police Department, Delta County Sheriff's Office and Hotchkiss Marshal's Office.
NIBRS is a reporting system used by law enforcement agencies in the U.S. for collecting and reporting data on crimes.
DPD Chief Luke Fedler credited Sindy Bruton, records administrator, with checking, approving and reporting crime data for the Delta Police Department. He presented a plaque to Bruton, a 12-year veteran of the police department, at the Nov. 7 meeting of the Delta City Council.
A similar presentation was made in Hotchkiss on Nov. 9, with Mayor Wendell Koontz presenting Marshal Dan Miller with a plaque for error-free reporting from July 2016 through July 2017.
Two of the four marijuana questions on the November ballot were narrowly approved by voters in the City of Delta. Measure 2F allows the establishment of medical marijuana centers. Measure 2H permits the establishment of medical marijuana cultivation, testing, research and manufacturing facilities.
