Denver is making it easier for whistleblowers to report ethics violations

Axios Denver: Denver City Council approved on Monday amendments to the city’s Code of Ethics that will help protect the identity of whistleblowers by allowing anonymous complaints.

Why it matters: Filing an ethics complaint against Denver officials will no longer require the disclosure of personal information, like one’s name and home address.

The backdrop: The Denver Board of Ethics — a five-member panel appointed by the mayor and city council to regulate Code of Ethics compliance — releases findings and opinions, but lacks disciplinary power.
