As part of the ongoing focus on the East Mulberry Corridor, a multi-agency enforcement operation was conducted by the Larimer County Sheriff's Office on November 20, 2013. The special enforcement action focused on both criminal and traffic enforcement as part of  Operation New Dawn.  

The operation included both uniformed and plainclothes deputies and officers. The operation was successful in meeting the objectives of establishing a strong law enforcement presence in the area to deter criminal activity, making multiple contacts of both vehicles and pedestrians and assisting Colorado State Parole officers in contacting and checking in on parolees who live in the corridor. 
 
Over 70 people were contacted during the six-hour operation which resulted in 52 warnings, one citation and three arrests (two for DUI and one warrant arrest).
 
Participating agencies included the Larimer County Sheriff's Office, State of Colorado Parole and the Colorado State University Police Department.
 
Wednesday night's action was part of an overall program designed to address the amount and type of criminal activity occurring in the East Mulberry Corridor, defined as the area on Mulberry Street from Timberline Road east to County Road 5. Dubbed "Operation New Dawn" this long-term, multi-year program, which began early last year, includes as its objectives community outreach, education and involvement as well as coordination of other government resources and services in addition to criminal investigation and enforcement.
