Office of the Independent Monitor

The Office of the Independent Monitor (OIM)  is the civilian oversight agency for the Police and Sheriff Departments for the City and County of Denver.  The OIM was created by the Mayor and City Council in 2004 and began its work on August 1, 2005.  The OIM is staffed by fourteen employees including seven monitors, primarily attorneys: the Monitor, the Senior Deputy Monitor, and five Deputy Monitors. In order to perform our research and policy functions, the OIM is also staffed by a Policy Director, and two Research Analysts.  Committed to community engagement and public access to OIM work, there is also a Community Relations Ombudsman and Youth Project Coordinator.  The OIM’s work is supported by the Office Manager and Case Manager.
