The Fraternal Order of Police say officer Robert Price is wrongly accused.
Price has been charged for the shooting that killed a 3-year-old mixed-breed dog named Chloe. A neighbor recorded the incident in November when the dog was shot five times.
Monday, on its website the Colorado chapter of the FOP said, "It is our opinion these officers did nothing wrong and are unfortunate victims of a sensationalized media event."
They are calling for fellow officers from the area to go to Officer Price's arraignment next week to show their support.
