Ethics board dismisses complaint against Councilwoman CdeBaca filed by Denver police officer

The Denver Board of Ethics on Tuesday dismissed a complaint filed by a Denver police officer against City Councilwoman Candi CdeBaca regarding her actions during a protest of the removal of a homeless encampment.

Much of the ethics code overseen by the board focuses on conflict of interest issues, gifts to city employees and preventing favoritism.
