Civil rights groups offer 5-point plan for JoCo police departments to improve how they collect citizens’ feedback

Civil rights advocates this week have started petitioning cities in Johnson County to improve their systems for receiving feedback on interactions with police. Currently, the group says local police departments either lack online feedback forms entirely, or the forms are hard to find or take too long to fill out. File image.
