The Denver Police Department is actively investigating and increasing security measures for Colorado Supreme Court justices after they received numerous threats following a controversial ruling against former President Trump.

A department spokesperson stated, “It is providing extra patrols around justice’s residences in Denver and will provide additional safety support if/as requested.”

The justices recently rendered Trump ineligible for the state’s 2024 presidential primary ballot, invoking the “insurrection clause” of the 14th Amendment and citing his involvement in the January 6, 2021, Capitol attack. This 4-3 decision has led to a surge in threats, prompting both local and federal law enforcement to respond. The Denver Police Department emphasized its ongoing investigations into incidents directed at the justices, collaborating with various law enforcement agencies to address any threats or harassment.

The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) has also confirmed its involvement, with spokesperson Vikki Migoya confirming their commitment to “vigorously pursue investigations of any threat or use of violence.”
