Do you believe that the public, with few exceptions, has a right under Colorado open records law to obtain records reflecting internal investigations into serious allegations of misconduct related to an officer’s on-duty conduct involving a member of the public?



As a general matter, I share this view. As noted, there will be times where exceptions will need to be made, such as to protect the identities and safety of involved parties. But so long as these exceptions are in place, as a general rule citizens should have access to such information and Denver’s ability to manage such a system demonstrates that it can be managed effectively.
