Information previously released ________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________
(02-24-2020) From the moment I took over as Aurora’s Interim Police Chief, I promised transparency to our residents to help build back the trust within our community. Continuing with that promise, I wanted to let you know of my decision today to terminate one of our police officers, over what I believe to be severe misconduct. This officer’s conduct was completely out of character with the mission, ideals, and expectations of the Aurora Police Department.

It should be noted that there were no serious injuries as a result of this incident but that neither excuses nor defends the officer’s actions.

Due to a pending appeals process that is given to civil service employees, I am unable to provide additional details or information about this incident until that process has been completed. At such time, I will make the body worn camera footage available and address questions from our community members.

Thank you,

Interim Chief Vanessa Wilson
Aurora Police Department
