Loveland Reporter-Herald: The outside investigation into the Loveland Police Department offered a positive review of the department’s policies and practices along with several critiques on how to improve in the areas in which it is lacking.
The report conducted by Jensen Hughes, in the works since the summer of 2021, was released by the city of Loveland late Wednesday afternoon. The investigation and report were ordered following the release of information on the 2020 arrest and injury of Karen Garner, a case that gained international attention.
The nearly 60-page report begins with a 13-part key findings section, breaking down what the organization found as the most important. Following the key findings, the report includes community perspectives before breaking into five distinct sections with comments, critiques and, in some cases, commending the department for different policies and procedures.
