Reader: New Denver Police Chief Robert White saying the right things -- but will he do them?
New Denver Police Chief Robert White acknowledges that he's got a big job ahead of him when it comes to building a positive relationship between residents and the local force.
The following post from a doubting reader demonstrates just how large the challenge will be.
People, this future DPD Chief is saying nothing different from what the chiefs before him said. "This department is for the people," "We will be transparent." It's all a joke. At the start and end of the day, the Blue Brother/Sister Hood is all that is going to matter to him. If we what a different type of people in offices such as this, we must change how we approach who we elect and what laws we let pass.
