An Aurora councilwoman and the police chief are at odds after a radio interview in which the councilwoman openly declared her desire to push out the police chief and declare the streets of Aurora were, “not safe.”
According to the Colorado Sentinal, Councilmember Danielle Jurinsky made the comments on a local political talk radio show. She not only called out Chief Vanessa Wilson, the city’s first female police chief, but also her deputy chief. She namely pointed the two out for low morale, employee turnover, and a recent increase of crime.
Now the city is looking into whether the comments violated the city’s charter. This also could lead to a censure vote at the next city council meeting.
The radio host specifically asked Jurinksy what she think she could do and she responded, “We remove the chief immediately, and with her takes out the trash of the deputy chief of police, Darin Parker.”
She followed that up by saying, “Chief Vanessa Wilson is trash.”
In order for Jurinksy to be censured, two-thirds of the council would have to vote to affirm that the violation took place.
