Montrose crime wave

City of Montrose

On May 14th, citizens, police officers and members of Montrose Crime Stoppers went before the City Council and asked for a ballot initiative in November that would raise sales tax revenue for public safety. A sharp increase in petty and property crime has taxed an already shorthanded Montrose Police Department.
