ACLU Settles With City Jail

DENVER POST - Denver jailers have agreed to hand over a policy-and-procedures manual that deals with the processing and treatment of detainees at the downtown jail to the American Civil Liberties Union of Colorado, the ACLU announced Wednesday.

The handover of the manualis part of an agreement in which the city pays the ACLU's legal fees, up to $5,000, but admits no wrongdoing, the ACLU said.

The handover — due by June 25 — still could contain redacted, or blacked-out, sections, the ACLU said, which could send the matter back to court.

The Denver Sheriff's Department did not immediately return a call seeking comment. Undersheriff Bill Lovingier, who directs the jail, was in meetings.

The first court hearing on the matter was to be Thursday.

The ACLU wants to review the policies in anticipation of the Democratic National Convention "because of the possibility of mass arrests in connection with protests."

Lovingier told The Denver Post last month that several additional processing facilities would be in place during the convention to handle as many as 3,000 arrests quickly.

Good luck to the ACLU on getting answers, I have in my possesion a copy of a police report regarding a woman who was raped in DWCF, (prison). The last paragraph of a totally false report was blacked out by the Denver DA's office!! Gee wouldnt it be nice to know what that says. I thought it was a crime to alter or change a police report??? But then how would i get Mitch Morrissey to prosecute his own staff??? djw

Unfortunately there is too much evidence that those involved in protecting the public feel they are totally above the law.
There was a story this morning that campers were evacuated from a camp because there was a meth user arrested that was a caretaker at the camp, so they have replaced him with a Deputy sheriff, as though hiring a deputy sheriff would make any difference? They are just as bad drug users, but just never caught.mpc
