Two Denver Sheriff Department deputies punished for using excessive force on inmates

Another deputy was punished for the third time this year for mistakes in the records unit

“Two Denver Sheriff Department deputies received suspensions last month for using excessive force against inmates — one of them for the second time, according to department documents.

And a deputy in the records unit was suspended for the third time this year for making a careless mistake that could have put public safety in jeopardy, records show.

Deputy Thao Nguyen, who was hired in 2012, was suspended for 15 days after he shoved a handcuffed inmate face first into a wall and smashed the inmate’s face with his forearm and elbow, according to a copy of his disciplinary letter obtained by The Denver Post. An internal investigation also found that Nguyen made misleading statements when reporting his use of force incident, the letter said.”
