92 percent of Denver city employees have completed sexual harassment training

DENVER -- 92 percent of Denver city employees have completed sexual harassment training.

That updated was provided by Denver city officials to FOX31 and Channel 2 on Friday.

Back in March, the city announced a new sexual harassment training program.

While the training took place in the aftermath of sexual harassment allegations surrounding Mayor Hancock; the city has insisted the program was initiated months earlier.
