Dozens of inmate complaints never investigated until now

DENVER (AP) - Denver's independent monitor says the sheriff's department didn't investigate dozens of inmate allegations of deputy misconduct over the past two years.

According to the Denver Post, the monitor determined that there were 54 serious inmate complaints that included allegations of excessive force, sexual misconduct and bias.

The monitor said the department investigated only nine of those cases.

The report also says the sheriff's department failed to notify the monitor's office of misconduct complaints as required by city laws.

The sheriff's department denies the allegations and says its procedures have been praised in the past.
