If you're not aware of the incident at Central High School. On April 24 officers responded to a verbal altercation between some students. This led to one of the students being taken down by one of the officers and detained on the scene.

Video footage of the altercation between the student and the officer began to circulate on social media, leading to debate on whether the actions of the police officer were warranted. The Mesa County Sheriff's Office has been investigating the incident.

The Mesa County Sheriff's Office has been very transparent with everything they're doing, including sharing body camera footage for the general public to view and make their own opinions.

Across social media, residents of the area have strong opinions for and against both sides of the incident.

We strongly support the work our local law enforcement does on a day-to-day basis, and with limited information --either from the body cam footage circulating on social-- we feel our opinions should stay just that, ours.

We feel that the authorities will make the correct decision based on their investigation.
