9NEWS: It’s now a lot easier to get all kinds of information about the Denver Police Department.
On Thursday, the department published an online dashboard with details about internal affairs investigations, officer-involved critical incidents, even calls for service and response time trends. It’s located under the “Transparency and Performance” tab on DPD’s home page.
“I hope it adds a layer of transparency, that it allows people to see what we’re doing, see that were holding ourselves accountable,” said Denver Police Chief Ron Thomas. “[Let people] see that we’re measuring response times and doing everything we can to reduce those response times. I’m sure there’s always questions when officers use force. Being able to get specifics on those cases, I think, is important.”
