DENVER — Denver Safety Manager Al LaCabe is proposing a new way of disciplining problem cops - an approach that could free department brass from adhering to penalties imposed in the past.
The new approach hinges on the creation of a "discipline matrix" that would spell out the consequences officers would face for specific infractions, he said. It would list fines, suspension periods, even firing, depending on the severity of the offense.
Adoption could speed up the discipline process.
