Pinkerton can resume providing security in Denver after a protest shooting because of two short words in city law, the judge rules

Pinkerton could once again provide security services in Denver after a judge revoked the international company’s permanent revocation of the city’s license after a protester was shot by a sub-contracted guard.

Denver District Court Judge David Goldberg on Tuesday overturned the Denver Department of Excise and Licensing’s permanent repeal of the company’s license, citing two short words in a city ordinance.

The department revoked Pinkerton’s license to operate a security business in Denver because of the firm’s ties to the deadly 2020 shooting of Lee Keltner on June 7, 2021.

Denver television station 9News hired Pinkerton to provide a security guard for its reporters covering political rallies at the Civic Center on October 10, 2020. Pinkerton then contracted the work to another company, Isborne Security Services, which hired a contractor. Matthew Doloff.

After Keltner slaps Doll in the face and expels bear spray, Dolloff shoots and kills Keltner at the rally.

Prosecutors later dropped all criminal charges against Doloff, but the revocation of the two companies’ licenses required to legally operate in Denver stuck. Dolloff did not have the required license to work as a security guard in Denver and the Denver Department of Product and Licensing found that both Isborne should have verified that he had a license and that Pinkerton was responsible for the acts and failures of its subcontractors. was responsible for.

The relevant Denver municipal code governing the Department of Excise and Licensing states: “Any act or omission by any employee, agent or independent contractor that occurs in the course of his employment, contract with the agency or licensee shall be deemed to shall be applied to the licensee or licensee for the purposes of imposing any suspension, revocation or other sanction on the licensee or licensee.”
