Message from Chief Wilson Regarding Termination of an APD Police Officer 
(04-06-2020) On March 17th, 2020, Officer Jaired Dozier was involved in an off-duty crash where alcohol was involved in Colorado Springs. Since this time, Officer Dozier has been on restricted duty. An internal affairs investigation was initiated into the incident.

Today, I have made the decision to terminate Officer Dozier, effective immediately. Officer Dozier began working at the Aurora Police Department in February of 2019. He graduated the academy in August of 2019. He was a probationary employee, which means my decision is final and cannot be appealed.

Officer Dozier’s actions do not reflect the professionalism of those who wear this uniform and someone who should represent this organization. Since taking over as Aurora’s Interim Police Chief, I promised that I would not stand for or allow behavior like this in our agency. Our officers continue to be out in our community, every single day, during this unprecedented time. Their hard work and dedication should not be overshadowed with this one officers decisions he made while off-duty.

Thank you,

Interim Chief Vanessa Wilson
Aurora Police Department
