Colorado FOP President in Letter to Denver Mayor Hancock Demands Outside Investigation of Corruption
06/15/15 - Colorado State Lodge F.O.P.
An outside investigation of this affair by an independent agency must happen. And if that investigation reveals additional unethical acts or corruption those should also be addressed. You just spent several hundred thousand taxpayer dollars having an independent review and investigation conducted of the Denver Sheriffs Department. Surely the same standard as to why that was done would apply to allegations of this nature involving your Director of Safety. For that and other reasons involving public trust we would find it difficult to believe that you would not want an outside investigation.

Law enforcement is a calling for many officers, one that involves risk and sacrifice.
