Some Black Lives Matter protesters in Utah could face up to life in prison if they’re convicted of splashing red paint and smashing windows during a protest
Hundreds of people gathered in Cottonwood Heights Monday -- some rallying for the police department, and some protesting against it.
Salt Lake City Mayor Erin Mendenhall and SLC police chief Mike Brown unveiled seven new policy changes regarding the department's use of force, body-worn cameras and searches and seizures.
With a pandemic unlike any the world had seen in the past 100 years, the strongest earthquake to strike the city in six decades and well over a month of protests calling for social justice and reform, 2020 had not been an easy year for any first responder or law enforcement officer.
Lawmakers said change is coming when it comes to the legal use of deadly force by Utah police officers.
Salt Lake County District Attorney Sim Gill just released his recommendations for police reform, a conversation that's sparked dozens of protests over the past few months, some of which turned violent.
Salt Lake City Mayor Erin Mendenhall has called for changes to city policies and Utah’s laws that dictate when officers are allowed to use lethal force.
Salt Lake County District Attorney Sim Gill responded to the protest outside his office Friday, calling the vandalism to the building “an assault on every one of us.”
Gov. Gary Herbert declared a state of emergency following a protest in downtown Salt Lake City after sidewalks were covered with paint and windows smashed at the Salt Lake County District Attorney’s office.
Attorneys for Bernardo Palacios-Carbajal's family criticized Salt Lake County District Attorney Sim Gill's decision that officers were justified in using deadly force when they shot and killed Palacios-Carbajal in May.
