Staffing and transparency are top worries from Denver’s law enforcement watchdogs

Denverite: Understaffing and transparency in Denver law enforcement are the two main concerns for the city’s top law enforcement watchdogs in 2023.

That’s according to 2022 annual reports released by Denver’s Citizen Oversight Board (COB) and the Office of the Independent Monitor (OIM), led by new hire Liz Pérez Castle.

Both the Oversight Board and Independent Monitor work on police and sheriff accountability. They can make recommendations on law enforcement investigations, discipline, policies and training, monitor investigations and make complaint and mediation processes accessible to the community.
