ACLU Says Springs Police Kept "Spy Files"

By  | 

The American Civil Liberties Union is accusing Colorado Springs police of keeping surveillance files on peace protestors and sharing the information with Denver police.

Earlier this year the ACLU announced Denver police had been keeping spy files on people who've attended political protests and pushed for their release.

Now the ACLU says Colorado Springs police have been monitoring Citizens for Peace in Space, a Colorado Springs group which opposes nuclear weapons. Information about the group was found in Denver police files including the names and license plate numbers of people who attended their rallies.
