WE ARE A GROUP OF CONCERNED ALBANY COUNTY RESIDENTS DEMANDING TRANSPARENCY, ACCOUNTABILITY, AND COMMUNITY OVERSIGHT OF ELECTED OFFICIALS AND LAW ENFORCEMENT.
ACoPP in the news
In November, on the anniversary of Robbie’s death, Karlee Provenza won her election by a hundred and sixty votes. Hinkel cried when she heard the news. “It’s not all about justice,” she said. “It’s about a need for a change.”
Laramie City officials have continued to argue that community oversight of law enforcement is a bad thing and that what ACoPP has called for isn't legally feasible. But, those claims are meant to obstruct efforts towards transparency and accountability.
Without ACoPP's persistent pursuit for justice for Robbie Ramirez since Nov. 2018, Robbie's killing would have been swept under the rug.
After pushing for Colling's termination, he finally resigns after the former sheriff and county attorney are pushed out. ACoPP continues to demand that Colling be decertified by Peace Officer Standards and Training .
After helping push Dave O'Malley into retirement, ACoPP worked to ensure that the incoming sheriff wasn't someone groomed by the culture that created a toxic agency.
Though O’Malley may have been considering retirement since 2018, local and national protests, as well as public scrutiny, clearly rankled him.
After one year of no justice for the murder of Robbie Ramirez, community members came out to support Robbie's family and remind public officials that we haven't forgotten and we still demand justice for Robbie.
ACoPP released an autopsy report that says Albany County Sheriff's Corporal Derek Colling shot unarmed Robbie Ramirez three times, including two shots to the back.
