Twenty days after five assailants brutally beat and robbed a man at a light-rail station in Five Points, Denver Police Chief Robert White acknowledged his department waited too long to warn the public and release details about the attack.
The case has prompted the department to revisit its policies on the release of information during sensitive investigations, which is currently done on a case-by-case basis, White said Tuesday.
"In hindsight, we absolutely should have released this information to the community sooner, that's the bottom line," White said. "We are going to raise the bar a little bit in the future as it relates to how these videos should be — when they should be released and who should ultimately have the authority to release them." MORE
