Three Arvada officers resign amid probe of alleged excessive force - The Denver Post

ARVADA — Three police officers in Arvada have resigned after they, and two other officers, were involved in a case of alleged excessive force earlier this year.

The Arapahoe County Sheriff's Office is conducting a criminal investigation into the matter, according to Sheriff Grayson Robinson.

The Sheriff's Office will refer its findings to the Jefferson County district attorney's office when the investigation is finished.

Officials with the Arvada Police Department are not releasing details about the incident because it is still under investigation. The two officers who did not resign are on paid administrative leave, according to the city. All five of the officers remain under investigation.

This happened in Janusary? Why does it take this long to investigate. If a citizen is arrested it doesnt take 7 months to get him into court. Myself and i am sure the public is losing respect and support for law enforcement. Isnt it time to quit letting cops investigate themselves? djw
