We're kicking off #BehindTheBadgeofBPD!

Meet Officer Reyes, a Brighton Police Patrol Officer:

"Bringing justice to violence against women is the top reason I got into law enforcement. But I didn't have the motivation to enter law enforcement until I moved to Colorado in 2012. The Aurora Theater Shooting happened, followed by the murder of Jessica Ridgeway. Guilt hit me every time I heard about these cases because I felt like I couldn't do anything about them. I enjoy being there for people when they need it the most, even on the worst days of their lives.

My favorite hobby is Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, a sport that has taught me to stay calm even in the most high-stress of situations."

Want to meet Officer Reyes? Come to Coffee-with-a-Cop on Aug. 12 – 9a.m. at Cinn-A-Brew.

Hope to see you then!.

The ability to persevere in the face of difficulties is a key skill for success in school and in life. 2018 Daniels Scholar and Brighton High School, SD27J graduate, Nathan Hansen, has done just that.

On July 14th, Nathan successfully completed the American Ninja Warrior course in St. Louis, Missouri.

The journey to get to this point wasn’t easy. At age twelve, Nathan was diagnosed with Growth Hormone Deficiency. Nathan struggled in sports due to the danger of size and potential injuries like concussions. In school, Nathan faced bullying due to his size and stature.

The love, support, and inspiration Nathan received from teachers at BHS are what helped him to keep going through thick and thin. Mr. Ted Halbert, Mrs. Alicia Champlin and Mrs. Kathy Gustad were just a few of many teachers who inspired him to persevere and never lose sight of his goals. “No matter what the case was, they told me to push through, dedicate myself, and give it my all,” Nathan recalls.

We are #27JProud of all Nathan has accomplished and are grateful to claim him as an outstanding 27J alumnus. Keep on inspiring!

After careful consideration, the City of Brighton has decided to change the location of Car-nival Palooza on Oct. 24 from Elmwood Cemetery to the Brighton Sports Complex located at 1111 Judicial Center Drive.

Since announcing the drive-thru trunk-or-treat event back in early September, the City received multiple concerns from the public about hosting the event at the cemetery. Although the City also received positive feedback, we want to be respectful to all concerns.
