House Bill 21-1250 Whistleblower Protections and Requirements

All law enforcement agencies across Colorado know what it means when a person refers to “SB 20-217,” “the law enforcement integrity act,” and “HB 21-1250,” the 2021 legislation that amended certain provisions of SB 20-217 and enacted further measures concerning law enforcement accountability.

For more information about the new peace officer whistleblower protections, including mandatory training and posting requirements for law enforcement, read our most recent Blog Post.
