Police Report Fewer Crimes During Cheyenne Frontier Days

A spokesman for the Cheyenne Police Department says a new report shows police weren’t quite as busy during Cheyenne Frontier Days 2012 compared to the previous couple of years. Sgt. Rob Dafoe says police made a total of 91 arrests this year, compared to 107 in 2011. Although this year’s arrest total is up slightly from the 2010 total of 86, Dafoe notes violations in numerous categories, including underage drinking in the city, hit and run accidents and vehicle collisions both with and without injury were down significantly from both 2011 and 2010 this year. Dafoe also says a crackdown on drinking violations at Frontier Park appeared to go well, as undercover officers working the park found fewer violations than expected. Dafoe says he thinks widespread publicity of the new “zero tolerance” approach to underage drinking and similar violations may have discouraged people from illegal drinking and related activities at the park.
