Patrick Firman out as Denver sheriff

Patrick Firman is out as Denver sheriff after nearly four years on the job overseeing Denver’s jails.

“When I came here four years ago, it was to take action on over 400 reform recommendations that touched nearly every aspect of the Denver Sheriff Department,” Firman said in a statement released Wednesday night. “With the help of our partners and the tireless efforts of staff, we were successful in implementing those changes. It has been an honor to serve with these amazing men and women. I wish them the best as they continue to move forward.”

The resignation comes after weeks of intense media scrutiny after a woman sued the sheriff’s office after she gave birth alone in a jail cell and the city faced a $1.5 million settlement with multiple female jail deputies who alleged the sheriff’s office did not protect them from sexual harassment from inmates.

Hancock appointed Firman to the position on Oct. 15, 2015. Firman moved to Denver from Illinois, where he worked for sheriff’s departments.
