Denver could be among ‘high risk’ Homeland Security sites

DENVER ” The federal government may be poised to list Denver among a select few regions that the Department of Homeland Security considers at “high risk” for a terror attack.

U.S. House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer joined Rep. Ed Perlmutter, D-Colo., for a Friday meeting with officials from state and local public safety agencies to discuss Homeland Security grants. Hoyer said with the addition of the Democratic National Convention in 2008, Denver is likely to find itself listed as a terror risk site, and that could mean more federal grant money for security.

Colorado received $21 million in federal security grants this year. Perlmutter, who is a member of the Homeland Security Committee said the committee is scheduled to come to Colorado this spring to review the state’s security status.
