Aspen police won’t release details of veteran cop’s abrupt firing

The Aspen Times: An Aspen Times investigation into why a longtime Aspen police officer was abruptly fired last month is raising more questions than it answered.

Officials with the Aspen Police Department and the City Attorney’s Office have steadfastly refused to answer questions that have arisen in the wake of Officer Walter Chi’s forced resignation March 19.

“I know this is frustrating for you, but as we have stated previously we will not be commenting on any personnel matter involving Walter,” Aspen Assistant Police Chief Linda Consuegra wrote April 8 in response to the third Colorado Open Records Act request filed by the Times for information on Chi. “We have checked with our HR department and the city attorney and they feel the same.”

Chi did not return a phone message Friday seeking comment.
