Gov. Jared Polis Plans To Sign Police Accountability Bill
Overseeing the vote in the state House on Friday were family and friends of Bailey and Elijah McClain who died after an encounter with Aurora Police in 2019.
“The law has changed because of him. It was because of Elijah McClain and De’Von Bailey that I had legislation ready to go,” Herod said. “There’s not much I can do to bring him back or to change the outcome of his case. But what I can do is change it for people moving forward. And if it does that, our law enforcement officers are held accountable both criminally and civilly.”
