DPD Union Head Objects to PR Efforts

John Furrugia, et al, at KMGH/Channel 7 report that the president of the Denver Police union, Detective Nick Rogers, objects to the money spent on the DPD’s public relations efforts.

“We’re spending that kind of money on videos that don’t drop the crime rate,” said Rogers, a 30-year veteran of the department. “[Videos] don’t solve burglaries and robberies. That’s our mission and I think we lost sight of that.”

Ironically, much of the work the DPD PR unit does is designed to distract the public from exactly the kind of violations of which Rogers himself has been accused.
