“As chief, I have a duty to ensure the actions of all our employees are within policy and meet the expectations of our values,” CU Boulder Chief of Police Ken Koch said in a statement. “When there are allegations of wrongdoing, we need to investigate those fully and be accountable for the findings. I am very concerned about the alleged conduct because it does not reflect the strong reputation of our department nor the character of our employees.”

According to the arrest warrant, the alleged victim felt harassed by the number of email and texts that Dodson sent her, along with unwanted sexual advances.

Dodson, a CUPD employee since 1996, has been placed on administrative leave.
