In settlement with activist, Englewood agrees to police body cameras, First Amendment training

Westword (Denver): Not long after Michael Sexton filed a lawsuit against Colorado Springs over his arrest for using the word “f*ck” in an exchange with city police officers, Eric Brandt settled a nearly three-year-old complaint over a similar incident in Englewood.

According to the settlement reached earlier this month, Englewood has agreed to pay Brandt $30,000, as well as mandate the use of body cameras for its police officers within eighteen months — sooner than the July 1, 2023, deadline established by police-reform legislation passed in June by the Colorado Legislature — and “conduct training related to First Amendment issues.”
