Grand Junction Photography Project Looks Beyond The Badge

This week is National Police Week. It is an occasion to honor officers who died in the line of duty. 

The time of remembrance this year comes on the heels of protests against police in major cities across the U.S. and a national debate on police tactics. 

In a local effort to increase understanding between law enforcement and the public, a Western Slope photographer is trying to get people to look beyond the badge and see the person in uniform.

Photographer Nathan Lopez moved to Grand Junction seven months ago from Oregon.

Police Shootings In Grand Junction, Montrose

Aug 26, 2014

There was a police shooting in Grand Junction Monday. 

Not many details have been released, but two officers were responding to a call to remove someone from a property on Grand Avenue when they made contact with someone in a car parked outside.  Shots were fired, and the man in the car was killed.  A gun was recovered from the vehicle.

All of this comes less than 24 hours after a police shooting in Montrose.  Two officers with the City of Montrose were called out to check on the welfare of a 42-year-old man.  His family made the request.
