Lakewood police officer Connie Muller helps Athalie Mickelson, 4, through a bicycle obstacle course during the District Attorney's Community Safety Awareness Day on Saturday at the Jefferson County Fairgrounds.


The event, in its fourth year, provided a host of activities and services for all ages. The fair brought out nearly 5,000 Jeffco residents, making it the largest safety fair ever for the DA’s office. According to event organizers, the prescription-drug take-back collected 13 large bags of old medications, and residents filled four trucks with materials to be shredded.
