DENVER — In an effort to bring about meaningful change, the Denver Police Department will stand — virtually — in front of the public Wednesday evening to ask how the department can improve.

Denver Police Chief Paul Pazen will host a virtual meeting with the community from 6-7 p.m. Wednesday. In a press release, the department said this will be the first in a series of “listening opportunities.”

Denver residents are welcome to express what they want policing to look like in Denver moving forward.

Before the meeting begins at 6 p.m., attendees are encouraged to review the pillars of 21st century policing, as outlined by the U.S. Department of Justice.

Multiple activists told Denver7 on Tuesday they are cautiously optimistic about the town hall.
