LONGMONT, Colo. (AP) - A Colorado city is looking to launch an independent investigation after hearing claims that police entered several apartment units without tenants’ consent.

The Daily Times-Call reports (https://bit.ly/2s0nusk ) Longmont city officials are reaching out to public safety agencies outside of Boulder County to aid with the investigation. Residents say Longmont police entered a number of apartments meant for low-income residents with K-9 dogs without the consent of the tenants.

The report says the complex is run by the Longmont Housing Authority which notified the tenants of the inspection.

According to Deputy Police Chief Jeff Satur, the officers involved reported that they did not enter any units without prior consent.

The city said in a news release that there is no estimated date of completion for the investigation.
