Morrison, Colorado: Former police chief says notorious speed trap town forced him to resign over lack of tickets

Even the police chief in the town of Morrison, Colorado, learned you can’t fight City Hall.

Chief George Mumma Jr. accepted retirement on Aug. 12 after meeting with Town Manager Kara Winters, who complained his officers weren’t aggressive enough in writing traffic tickets, according to Mumma.

“It was made clear that our budget was based on traffic revenue,” Mumma said.

Mumma joined the department in Nov. 2017 when he said it had “One of the worst reputations in the Denver Metro area,” because it was known for being a speed trap.

“The officers weren’t trained and weren’t doing a lot of things other than writing tickets,” according to Mumma.
