The Denver police union had some strong words for the city's Independent Monitor last week. In a new report, the oversight agency says that Denver police officers do not arrest their own for DUIs unless the incident involves a collision.
The Monitor's office reviewed arrest reports from the last six years. While they found Denver officers charged with DUI in other jurisdictions -- 10 arrests, with just two accidents -- there were no DUI charges filed in the city of Denver that did not involve a traffic accident. The records showed five accidents during that period.
