Denver Police Department finishes major reorganization, with many demoted

Denver Police Chief Robert White's controversial reorganization of the department is now in effect, and top officials say the major restructuring will create a stronger agency -- even if many officers were forced to face demotions. In an effort to reduce "stagnation," White opened up positions, so that many officers had to reapply for their jobs. And at the end of the process, close to one hundred cops stepped down to lower positions.
