What is the Office of the Independent Monitor?

Independent Monitor Nicholas E. Mitchell
The Office of the Independent Monitor (OIM) is the City and County of Denver’s independent civilian oversight agency of the Denver Police and Sheriff Departments.  Led by Independent Monitor Nicholas E. Mitchell, the OIM accepts officer/deputy complaints and commendations, monitors investigations of alleged officer and deputy misconduct and recommends discipline to the Chief of Police, Director of Corrections and the Manager of Safety, when appropriate.  In addition, the Independent Monitor makes recommendations on policy, procedure and training to better help the Police and Sheriff Departments improve their service to the public.
For more information about OIM, please visit our web site at or on Facebook at  If you have had contact with sworn law enforcement personnel, good or bad, and would like to talk about it, please contact us at, (720) 913-3306 or drop by our office in the Wellington Webb Building, 201 W. Colfax Avenue, 12th Floor, Denver, CO 80202.  We always welcome invitations to talk about our work and the services we offer from any organization interested in understanding the importance of independent civilian oversight for Denver.
