Denver Police Commander Debra Dillly heads District 6, the core downtown area. On July 8, 2008 she addressed a meeting of homeowners from three downtown condominium buildings, including the one I live in. She gave the best overview I’ve heard so far of what it’s really going to be like in my neighborhood August 25-28 when the Democratic National Convention comes to town. Now I will how to tell Obama‘s motorcade from President Carter’s, how regular police work will be handled, the effect of the convention on Denver’s homeless population, and what NOT to do if I get tear-gassed.
Note: The audio calls this episode 61, but in fact it’s number 62. Credit the error to sleep deprivation.
