On October 14, 2019, The NonProfit Times reported on the operations of Aurora Police Department Orphans, a charity that has recently experienced a material diversion of assets, in an article titled, "Former Cop Pleads Guilty To Charity Theft." For this reason, we have issued a High Concern CN Advisory. For more information regarding the charges reported, please see The NonProfit Times article.

  • On December 16, 2019, The Colorado Sentinel published an article titled, "Former Aurora cop who stole $65K from police charities sentenced to 18 months in jail with work release." For more information, please see The Colorado Sentinel article.

The concerns raised about illegal activity, improper conduct, or organizational mismanagement are serious both in nature and scope and have thus warranted this CN Advisory. We have published this advisory to provide donors with content that they may find useful when making their giving decisions.
