Citizen Police Academy Alums Sharpen Crime-Solving Skills

On a dark and stormy night this past October, members of the Arvada Police Department's Citizen Police Academy Arvada Alumni (CPAAA) gathered for an evening of food, fun, and forensics at the eighth annual Murder Mystery Dinner at the Indian Tree Golf Clubhouse. Fifty-one people met to socialize and practice their crime-solving skills.

The group sharpened their wits with an elaborate murder scene designed by Sergeant Jeff Monzingo and fellow police employee Judy Slivensky.  This year's crime scene asked the forensic teams to investigate a suspicious death to determine if the case was a suicide or murder.

Numerous door prizes were offered throughout the evening. Attendees remarked that they are looking forward to next year’s event!
