The OIM is a civilian oversight agency that was created by the City of Denver and began its work on August 1, 2005. The OIM is staffed by six employees (five full time and one part time) including three attorneys: the Monitor, the Senior Deputy Monitor and the Deputy Monitor. In order to perform our outreach and research functions, the OIM is also staffed by a Community Relations Ombudsman and a Research Analyst. The staff’s work is supported by the OIM’s Office Manager.
The mission of the Office of the Independent Monitor is to provide fair and objective oversight of the Denver Police and Sheriff Departments. The Monitor’s mission is directed at transparency and accountability of Denver’s sworn Safety personnel and the policies which govern them.
Complaints should be filed in a timely manner in order to ensure efficient handling and quality investigations. Commendations for good police work are always welcome.
