Denver whistle blower claims deputy discipline is broken

9NEWS (Denver): In a surprise testimony before Colorado legislators on Wednesday, Brittany Iriart took to a microphone amid the debate over a proposed police reform bill and claimed the discipline process for deputies is broken.

“I’m seeing that more and more officer misconduct is being covered up. All at the expense of the public safety,” Iriart told the House Finance Committee.

Iriart has worked as a citizen investigator within the Public Integrity Unit under Denver’s Department of Public Safety for three years. She investigates misconduct and will pass along her findings, which are then used by the department of safety to administer discipline.

Wednesday’s hearing included public testimony as lawmakers move forward with a bill that aims to reform how police in Colorado interact with the public.
