Lying officers first to lose police certifications under new Colorado law

Colorado Public Radio: Six police officers who lied on the job had their certifications stripped by state officials on Friday — a first under a new state law that passed last year.

None of the officers showed up at the Police Officers Standards and Training board meeting before members cast their votes to decertify them as peace officers.

“This is historic in that we have not had prior decertifications for untruthfulness,” said Colorado Attorney General Phil Weiser. “This is an important effort.”
