Woodland Park, Colorado — Executive-level members of the Woodland Park Police Department are interviewed as part of a criminal investigation conducted by the Colorado Department of Investigation and the Teller County Security Officer’s Office.
According to Michael Lawson, manager of the city of Woodland Park, the two commanders, Ryan Holtzworth and Andy Ravebrand, took regular paid administrative leave during the investigation.
Authorities told Lawson that it was a crime, but no information was released about the allegations behind the target or the investigation. Both commanders are cooperating with investigators and have not been charged at this time, Lawson said.
Lawson told Denver 7 that the investigation into the allegations against De Young was not a crime in nature and was separate from the ongoing investigation into the CBI and TCSO.
As three members of the small unit are on vacation, Lawson said the city is considering several different options to play a leadership role. According to Sergeant Lawson, Sergeant Mike McDaniel and Sergeant Beth Huber will handle personal obligations on vacation for the foreseeable future.
