Our country is devastated by the frequent deaths and injuries of hundreds of Black and Brown people at the hands of the police. Police officers are entrusted to protect and serve the community and should be held accountable to the people they serve. Demand humane, equitable, and constitutional policing in Colorado communities.
Contact your representative and tell them to vote in support of the Law Enforcement Integrity and Accountability Act.
Police officers often escape liability because of qualified immunity, a legal doctrine that prevents the community from holding police responsible when they violate laws, policies, and community trust. Police officers are government officials who should be held accountable to the people they serve.
