The bill requires a law enforcement agency to provide a credibility
disclosure notification to a district attorney's office if a peace officer's
credibility is called into question by an internal investigation, an
allegation, or a sustained finding. The bill outlines conduct that a law
enforcement agency shall report to a district attorney's office. The law

enforcement agency shall also provide the credibility disclosure
notification to the involved peace officer at least 7 calendar days prior to
sending the credibility disclosure notification to the district attorney's
office, except under specific circumstances.
The bill requires a district attorney's office to adopt written policies
and procedures for receiving and maintaining credibility disclosure
notification records (records) concerning peace officers. A district
attorney's office shall determine whether a record must be created based
on a law enforcement agency's credibility disclosure notification. The
policies and procedures must include a process to notify defense attorneys
or defendants of a record pursuant to rule 16 of the Colorado rules of
criminal procedure, as well as a process to remove a record found to be
inaccurate or false by the court or the relevant law enforcement agency.
