Hello

I'm in love with Denver and the area. This forum has been quite helpful. I was watching a TV drama, and realized if you want to know about a specific area of town and get a good answer on higher crime areas, consult your police station.
I did call the Denver Metro but the help desk wasn't really forthcoming. So I will try again. Please advise, I know I am asking allot but I really do appreciate it.

I am transferring with my company and unaware of which intersections are safer than others. Being a single woman, mid 30's, I rather not fear going home on a closing shift which could be 10:30p or midnight. I have many options for transferring locations since I work at Walgreens.

Please rate the intersections and areas based on your likeness of it, general reasons not to by knowledge of your job (crime, consider nighttime activity as well, unfriendly community), I wouldn't fit there because of opposite age group. 5 being the highest positive, 1 being the absolute worst.
Provide additional info if you have the desire to.

Federal/Speer
Federal Boulevard & Alameda
Colfax Avenue & Race Street
Colfax Avenue & Sheridan Boulevard
16th Street & Stout Street
Hampden Avenue & Poplar
Colorado Boulevard & Alameda Avenue
Colorado Boulevard & Mississippi Avenue
Quebec Street & Leetsdale Drive
Evans Avenue & Monaco
19th Avenue & Franklin
Broadway & 1st Avenue
13611 N. Colorado Blvd., Thornton, CO 80602-7051
Intersection:*Colorado Boulevard & 136th

Thank you so very, very much!!!!

Your last two intersections are not only the safest for you...they are the only two that aren't bad at that time of night. The problem with Denver is that there's no "HOOD"... there are bad blocks in decent neighborhoods...which all happen to be the blocks that back to the shopping streets.

BTW local LE will not answer these questions...Ask a Realtor for crime data of Google it.

There is not a Realtor around who would give you crime data. We would,however give you a suggestion to call the local pd, to ask them directly.

There is no one on any police force that would answer your question in a online forum.

This is research that you should do for yourself.

I've had realtors give me the crime data before...the LE agencies never do though.
