Happy Holiday/Hanukkah/Merry Christmas/Kwanzaa to whomever stole my Christmas lights from my front lawn. If you just knocked on my door and explained you're too busy with your obviously important life to pick some up on your own or you just can't afford to buy your own (wonder how you're stealing the electricity to run them...I digress) I would have given you some for the holiday. This is why we can't have nice things. Happy Holiday's everyone!

Join us for a discussion on policing and incarceration in Denver. The Citizen Oversight Board practices civilian oversight, an ever-evolving field designed to provide communities with a voice in how law enforcement is conducted. We rely on community input and look forward to your comments and questions.
Hi, North City Park! I wanted to drop a note and make sure you are all familiar with the Denver Citizen Oversight Board (COB). The COB practices civilian oversight—an ever-evolving field designed to provide communities with a voice in how law enforcement is conducted. We were voted into the City Charter last year, no doubt with much of your help. Under the Charter, the COB is authorized to make policy recommendations to the Denver Police Department and Denver Sheriff Department. We just launched a Facebook page, because we're hoping to hear more from the community. We hope you'll follow it and share your thoughts on policing, incarceration, and oversight in Denver. We welcome your voices at our bi-weekly board meetings and our quarterly public forums!
