Denver, Aurora community groups want statewide task force on police accountability

9NEWS: Leaders of community groups in Denver and Aurora announced plans Monday to create a statewide task force dedicated to police accountability and transparency.

“Violence is on the uptick, whether we’re talking youth violence, officer-involved shootings — it does not matter what the violence is. Violence begets violence,” said Candice Bailey, activist and member of the Aurora Police Oversight Task Force.

Bailey joined members of the Denver Task Force to Reimagine Policing and Public Safety and the Denver Justice Project on the west steps of the Capitol Monday afternoon.
