Mar. 29—The 9/11 memorial in Broomfield was vandalized over the weekend.
The suspect or suspects painted anti-police statements and symbols on the flagstone partitions, bronze plates and police statues at the memorial located in Broomfield Community Park, Broomfield police Public Information Officer Rachel Welte said. The flag was also stolen and two lights were damaged.
“The nature of the graffiti no doubt shocked many community members who saw it Saturday morning while walking the nearby path,” Welte said.
An on-call Parks, Recreation and Senior Services staff member responded to remove as much of the paint as possible, she said. The tagging was removed by Sunday and staff will finish cleaning the memorial Monday. Welte said the flag has since been replaced.
There is no suspect information at this time. Anyone with information is asked to contact the Broomfield Police Department.
“We will keep a close eye on the memorial for the time being,” Welte said.
