Deputy Thomas Ford of the Denver Sheriff’s Department, who was fired in August 2014 for excessive force after slugging a drunken, foul-mouthed prisoner, will be reinstated to his job, thanks to a decision by the Career Service Board.
In keeping with established policy, Ford’s termination will be revised to a paid suspension. This means, in effect, that the “punishment” for Ford’s act of aggravated assault would be a 14-month paid vacation. Two other deputies involved in the incident, including one who covered up Ford’s act of aggravated assault by refusing to report it, were reinstated by the Career Service Board last month.
