A background check into recently elected Arapahoe County Sheriff Tyler Brown shows that he applied to become a deputy for the county twice, and was denied each time.
Fox 31 performed a thorough employment screening on the newly elected sheriff and though the reason he was rejected is confidential, Brown believes he was denied a job because of his suitability assessment.
That pre-employment test is performed by a third-party firm and is unable for public viewing.
In its investigation, Fox 31 found that Sheriff Brown left his position as an officer for the Northglenn Police Department after an internal affairs report found that he was dishonest.
He then held jobs in the Aurora Public School District and the Mountain View Police Department, before he ran on the Democratic ticket to become sheriff.
Brown applied to become a deputy in 2009 and 2013.
The previous sheriff believes his replacement is unfit for the job and only won it because he ran as a Democrat.
