New Year's Eve quiet in the Tri-Lakes area: No arrests in Monument or Palmer Lake


New Year's Eve was a relatively quiet one in the Tri-Lakes area for law enforcement.

The Monument Police Department had several calls for service but made no arrests and no one was charged with driving under the influence.

Lt. Steve Burk, public information officer for the Monument Police Department said in the past there have been times when the holiday has been quiet and other times it's been a typical New Year's Eve and they have been busy. This year happened to be a quiet one.

Palmer Lake rang in the New Year quietly as well. Lt. Jason Vanderpool of the Palmer Lake Police Department said their department didn't even have any calls for service.

“It was very uneventful for us,” Vanderpool said.

The El Paso County Sheriff's Office reported several traffic stops on the police blotter and responded to a call for reckless endangerment and someone shooting a gun in the air in unincorporated El Paso County.
