Mayor John Hickenlooper today accepted the resignation of Manager of Safety Ron Perea.
“Ron came to Denver with all of the right credentials and experience to lead the Department of Safety,” Hickenlooper said. “He feels that the events of the past few days have limited his ability to gain community confidence. Ron is a true professional who has spent his entire career unselfishly serving the public and his country. We wish him well as he decides his next steps.”
Perea’s resignation is effective Aug. 31. Deputy Manager of Safety Mary Malatesta will take over as interim Manager of Safety until a new Manager can be found. No timeline has been created for a search process.
