'We recognize, we acknowledge that we always haven't gotten it right, but we will work together with our community to do it better in the future,' Pazen said, KDVR reports.

'If that means identifying folks within our department that don't adhere to our policy and values, then it's incumbent that we hold them accountable and do something about it.'

Many have slammed police departments across the country for their handling of the protests and demonstrations that have taken over the United States, as protesters demand justice for George Floyd and police brutality.
