DPD Nading memorial vandalized a second time

For the second time in four months, the Denver Police Department’s memorial sign to fallen officer Merle Nading has been vandalized.

This second vandalizing comes at roughly the same time the DPD memorial to fallen officer Celena Hollis was also hit by spray paint.


Complete Colorado reported on the first incident in July, pictured below.


Nading’s memorial sign is on the north side of Colfax near Gaylord Street, where Nading was killed in the line of duty in 1971.
