Policing Reform

NACDL advocated for legislation to increase police transparency and accountability and to prevent excessive force.

In June 2020, Colorado’s legislature passed sweeping police reforms in the aftermath of nationwide protests over the death of George Floyd. SB20-217, which NACDL supported along with a large, diverse coalition of organizations, enacts several provisions to prevent excessive force by the police and increase transparency and accountability. Key provisions include: ending qualified immunity; mandating body cameras by 2023 and making video of police misconduct publicly available; requiring data collection and public reporting on policing; limiting use of deadly force by officers, requiring officers to intervene to stop deadly force; decertifying officers who use deadly force or other misconduct; creating a database to prevent rehiring of officers engaged in misconduct; and protecting protestors from police use of tear gas and projectiles.
