The Denver officers who negotiated discipline deals
In 2017, Officer Spitzer violated probation after being found guilty for drunk driving in 2016. He faced 60 days suspension but agreed to serve 20 days and to abstain from using alcohol along with treatment recommendations.
In 2017, an alleged prostitute said Phillips paid her for sex. He faced termination but got a deal suspending him for 30 days. In 2018, Phillips was disciplined again for having a relationship with a victim of sexual assault. Phillips kept his job.
In 2016, Lucero used his badge to get hotel security video for personal reasons. He got a deal on suspension, as long as he stayed out of trouble. In 2017, he was disciplined for inappropriate force. The prior deal was not enforced.
In 2014, Officer Owenby got into a drunken fight with another Denver police officer. When Aurora police arrived, Owenby said he would lie to Denver internal affairs about the fight. Owenby could have been fired, but he was suspended for 90 days.
In 2016, Sergeant Jaramillo placed his loaded gun on a desk and pointed it at another officer when he became “displeased” over a conversation about how to use computer software. He faced termination, but the department reduced his rank instead.
In 2017, security video showed Detective Cordova elbowing an officer with whom he had a history of conflict. He was accused of mischaracterizing the event, and "knowingly commit(ing) a materially deceptive act" for which he could have been fired.
In 2015, Detective Alarcon's personally owned gun was stolen from his vehicle. Alarcon was disciplined for failing to secure a firearm. His discipline documents show he negotiated a deal with the city and was docked two-days pay.
Officer Graves was disciplined for "inappropriate force" after using a taser on a suspect that the department found "did not at any time pose a threat to Officer Graves or to anyone else." He took a discipline deal resulting in 4 day suspension.
