In COLORADO... Who are the police obligated or even allowed to, give or even show a PPO to?
Can they just offer it up to someone who is not a law officer but simply a manager of a housing complex under USDA ?
A protection order is a court document. It is not a private paper and certainly does not belong to the Defendant. I can't think of anything that would bar a police officer from telling someone that you have a protection order issued against you or showing them a copy of that order.
On the other hand, the police are not obligated to discuss a protection order with anybody. I don't see that they are obligated to go and talk to a Defendant's landlord.
