FORT COLLINS, Colo. — A Fort Collins Police officer accused of wrongly arresting people for DUI has resigned.
Fort Collins Police Chief Jeff Swoboda said in a video posted to Facebook Friday that the officer, Jason Haferman, did not meet the training and standards required for officers.
"This officer let our community down and that hurts, but I promise we're going to continue to work with you to be a better police department tomorrow than we are today," Swoboda said. "We're committed to transparency. It doesn't mean we only let you know when things are going great. It means when we fall short of your expectations we're going to let you know."
Police said an internal investigation revealed at least nine DUI cases involving Haferman in less than a year with blood tests that came back with no alcohol or drugs present.
Haferman moved from DUI enforcement to the patrol division in May and in early September, he was reassigned to an administrative role with no involvement in casework.
In October, he was placed on administrative leave pending the results of the Internal Affairs investigation.
Swoboda said he planned to meet with the officer to discuss his final disciplinary decision, but Haferman resigned before that meeting.
