The American Civil Liberties Union of Colorado is bringing a smart phone app to the state that has been used by tens of thousands of people elsewhere to safeguard videos they record of law enforcement at work. Spokesman John Krieger says Mobile Justice will be available to Coloradoans by early July.

Krieger says that since the first such app was launched by the New York chapter of the civil liberties group in 2013, a dozen state chapters have followed suit. He says Colorado will be among 10 states launching apps in the next two months. Chris Johnson, head of the County Sheriffs of Colorado, says law enforcement officers support transparency.
