West Denver Copwatch


We are a group of individuals who come together in order to attempt to make the police accountable for their actions by videotaping police encounters in the streets.  We predominantly work in the West Denver area, but also are in cooperation with Aurora Copwatch along with other Copwatch organizations around the Metro Area.  

Police are consistently traumatizing and occupying our communities. Something as simple as a video camera, a pen and a pad of paper can significantly help deter the police from violating our community members’ rights.  We collect footage that both holds the police accountable and informs the people of their abuse of power.

Crucial in combatting police abuses is understanding and knowing your rights. However, in no way can this guarantee that violations will still not occur.  We strive to educate the people on their own individual rights and apply them in dealing with close encounters of the po-lice-kind.

By documenting police and collaborating with our communities we can help to establish alternatives to the violent ways of police-folk.  We as communities are more than capable of operating without the presence of a violent occupier that is armed to the teeth and is the most violent gang cruising our streets. 

We encourage every community to establish their own Copwatch in their hood.  The streets are watching!

  1. Thanks to this!

    I was assaulted by 3 officers downtown on Oct 27, 2007. I have taken them to court and trial for these three officers starts on May 5, 2010.

    I have fought to have my felony charges dropped and look forward to my day in court. I want to hear them explain how 750 lbs of police were needed to subdue me: all 160 lbs of it. Utter crap what these people call policing.

    I have started a blog here:
