A day with Denver’s Street Enforcement Team

1 min read


Since it launched in 2021, the Street Enforcement Team hasn’t issued any citations or written warnings.

DENVER — A team with the power to issue tickets to people violating Denver’s urban camping ban hasn’t given out any tickets since the program started.

Members of the city’s Street Enforcement Team, or SET, say fining people living on the street isn’t the way to solve the city’s homeless problem. Instead, they talk to them and try to connect them with resources.

“Build that trust with them. Build that understanding. Build that relationship with them,” said Tim Marquez, one of the members of SET. “That’s how you get compliance.”
