The Arvada Fire Protection District has launched an internal investigation of Fire Chief Jon Greer and his wife, accounting clerk Lauri Greer, placing the couple on paid administrative leave as the district investigates allegations “brought to the attention of the Board,” said a district statement.
“The District has the internal capacity to maintain all services to its employees and the citizens it serves,” the statement said. “As this is a confidential personnel matter, the District cannot disclose additional information at this time.”
In spite of several attempts, Jon and Lauri Greer could not be reached for comment.
Jon Greer joined Arvada Fire in 1979 and was promoted to fire chief in 2007. Lauri Greer joined the district as an accounting clerk in 2015.
The Arvada Fire Protection District provides firefighting and emergency medical services to approximately 120,000 people, according to the organization's website. The district consists of roughly 200 employees, operating eight fire stations across approximately 41 square miles in Arvada, Wheat Ridge and unincorporated Jefferson County.
As fire chief, Greer has made a number of contributions to the district, including by co-leading efforts to achieve national accreditation for the district from the Commission on Fire Accreditation International (CFAI) in 2014.
As of Aug. 27, Arvada Fire Protection District has not contacted the Arvada Police Department to launch a criminal investigation, the police department's Detective David Snelling said.
