Douglas County Colorado Sheriff Appoints Chief Deputy

Sheriff Tony Spurlock Appoints CBI Deputy Director to Chief Deputy

Sheriff Spurlock will appoint Steve Johnson to Chief Deputy at a Douglas County Sheriff’s Office (DCSO) promotion ceremony on August 4, 2014. Steve Johnson will be leaving his current position as Deputy Director of Investigations for the Colorado Bureau of Investigation (CBI) on August 1st to join Sheriff Spurlock’s command staff and oversee the Law Enforcement Bureau of DCSO.
“I view the work of the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office as some of the best in the state and beyond,” Johnson said. “To join this team is a dream.”
As deputy director of the CBI, Johnson led major state investigations including high-profile murders, drug rings, public corruption and more. As Sheriff Spurlock’s Chief Deputy of the Law Enforcement Bureau, Johnson will oversee Patrol and Investigations.
Sheriff Spurlock says “Steve Johnson brings with him extensive law enforcement experience and knowledge that will benefit the citizens and employees of Douglas County”.
Johnson has worked in law enforcement for 34 years. He joined the CBI as an agent in 2001 following a 21 year career at Littleton Police Department. He and his wife have lived in Douglas County for 28 years and have two children.
CBI Director Ronald Sloan says the news that Johnson is joining the DCSO is bittersweet.
“Although this represents a loss to the citizens of Colorado as a whole, it is a tremendous gain for the community of Douglas County…His performance in providing guidance and support of everything from the most complex to the seemingly menial investigations and projects has been nothing short of exceptional.”
