Legislation passed in 2015 requires all Colorado law enforcement agencies and district attorneys to develop a protocol for participating in a multi-agency team to conduct the investigation, or review, of incidents involving the discharge of a firearm by a peace officer resulting in injury or death. Each agency shall post the protocol on their website by December 31, 2015. If no criminal charges are filed following the investigation, the district attorney must release a report and post it on their website.

The First Judicial District has used a multi-agency Critical Incident Response Team (CIRT) since 1990 to investigate any discharge of a firearm by a law enforcement officer which resulted in death or injury.
