COMMERCE CITY, Colo. (CBS4) – The police chief in Commerce City, Clint Nichols, was allowed to work remotely from Las Vegas and drove a city vehicle back and forth in a practice that is now receiving scrutiny following a CBS4 investigation.

“Going forward, I would not like to see provisions like this in future contracts,” said Mayor Ben Huseman.

Huseman told CBS4,”I would hope that going forward, that if we have a contract executed with a key employee like this, that we would have provisions in place that would ensure our duties are executed here locally instead of from a remote location like that.”

But Commerce City Manager Roger Tinklenberg, who signed off on the chief working remotely from 755 miles away, called the issue “A nothing-burger” in an email to city council members, and refused to speak to CBS4 saying “Being interviewed would be a waste of my time.”

Nichols has been Chief in Commerce City since 2017. He came to the department from Las Vegas where he worked for the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department for 23 years. At times during 2021, Tinklenberg told Nichols it would be fine to work remotely from Las Vegas, so he did.

Tinklenberg said he allowed the chief to work from Vegas twice in the last year, each time for about a week “Since all of us office-bound employees were working remotely.”

Commerce City administrators were unable to provide exact dates of the remote work.

Nichols also drove his city-issued Chevy Tahoe the 755 miles each way from Commerce City to Las Vegas as it is allowed under the terms of his employment contract. That’s too much of a road trip for Huseman, who said “I don’t think our city vehicles should be going on extended trips like that.”

Huseman pushed back on allowing the chief to work from another state noting that high profile crimes occurred while Nichols was working from Nevada.

“Having your key leadership team there is important when events like that are taking place,” said the Mayor. Huseman said it was important “individuals in the city see a presence and see that our leadership is actually present and executing duties that need to be done.”

While Tinklenberg told city council members via email the issue was a “nothing- burger,” some police officers think differently. In a survey of city employees earlier this year, one officer commented, “Disconnected Chief. Hard for him to be a supervisor from Las Vegas.”

CBS4 also learned that on one of his road trips between Colorado and Nevada Nichols was ticketed in Utah while driving his city vehicle. In an email to the police department, Tinklenberg wrote: “Yes, he received a speeding ticket on a drive there. It was for 2.5 miles over the speed limit!” wrote the city manager. “The reason he got the ticket? He refused to let them search the vehicle which any citizen has the right to do and, in his case, would have been a waste of time.”

Tinklenberg went on to insist officers in Utah had racially profiled Nichols, who is Black.

“Utah police are looking for narcotics in Colorado plated vehicles+Tahoe with tinted windows+Black driver, jackpot,” offered the city manager, who said Nichols paid for the citation out of his own pocket. Commerce City administrators have not provided information on which Utah law enforcement agency cited the police chief.

Although Tinklenberg and Nichols refused to be interviewed, the city manager released a statement to CBS4 saying, “Chief Nichols remains focused on continuing to improve the Commerce City Police Department and I fully support him in those efforts. CCPD began its police reform efforts approximately five years ago. We are both committed to continuing the progress that CCPD has made to improve procedures, policies, and culture in ways that further strengthen the agency and inspire trust from community members. While there is a vocal minority that may push back on these efforts, I believe that the vast majority of the officers are committed to providing professional public safety service. Under the leadership of Chief Nichols and our command staff, CCPD will continue moving forward in a positive direction.”

Nichols has obtained a Masters degree in business administration, attended the Harvard Kennedy School for public leadership and the Police Executive Research Forum, according to an online biography.

Nichols receives a base salary of $155,000.

The Commerce City Collaborative is gathering donations to meet the needs behind the scenes in out community this Thanksgiving. Last year they were able to help 60 families with their food needs.

This from the organizer Tiffany Mitchell Moss last year:

 November 25, 2020 
My daughter and I handed out the last of the gift cards last night. After we delivered the last scheduled one we still had 7 left. My intention was to take it to a fixed income senior complex but they were already closed (gated area) by the time we were done. I told my daughter we were not going home until we found the people that needed these cards. We found out from our last delivery that there was a woman down her street that had six children and whose spouse had recently left. We pulled up to their home and handed the teenage boy out front two gift cards. He said thank you and ran into the open door of the little house calling for his mama. A couple blocks away we found another teenage boy in front of his home pulling up the trash cans. It was a busy street but there was nobody behind us so we stopped in the middle of the road. My daughter called to him and said that we had a gift card for his family. His face was priceless. It was half fear and half excitement. It was dark by this point and there were women offering him a gift card out of their car window lol He said, “are you serious?” and then accepted the gift card with so many thanks. After that There was a house with simple red Christmas lights on the porch. I went up to the door and the kids inside hesitantly took the gift card wondering who it was from. I just told them it was a surprise. When I got back in the car I saw them (thru the window) walk into the kitchen and hand it to their parents who are sitting at the dining room table with a new baby. Next we drove around for several minutes. Not really sure what we were doing. A few minutes later I saw a woman on the side of the road shoveling snow in front of someone’s house. It was after 6:00 at this point it was pretty cold out. I got out of the car and slowly approached her asking if this was her house. She said no. I told her I had a gift card for the people that lived at this address. She asked me if I knew their names. I told her I did not know. She said, “So you have a gift card for this address but don’t know the name of the person who lives here?” I told her that I felt that this house was supposed to be receiving a gift card so I stopped. She put down her snow shovel and started crying. She then told me that the woman who lived inside the house was her sister. Her sister was sick and her sisters husband had been admitted to the ICU just hours before and had been intubated. She took the card gratefully and ran toward the front door calling for her sister. The next one went to a man who was unloading his work truck in front of his home. We didn’t speak the same language but it was easy to see that he was excited and grateful for this gift. at this point we had one card left. My daughter and I drove around for quite a while. And I told her that she had to pick the next house. I asked her to just wait for the right feeling. Something that told her that it was the right house. We drove up and down several streets near Pioneer Park. She finally saw the house and I stopped in front. I got out and headed toward the front door nearly falling on my butt on some black ice. I rang the doorbell and a very hesitant teenager looked out the window and saw me. I did my best Forrest Gump wave to assure them that I was a friendly person. The dad and a couple of kids opened the door and I explained that they were selected to receive a gift card. They seemed confused that someone would just pick them. While walking back to the car I could see them hand the card to the mom of the family. She opened the door and yelled happy Thanksgiving to me. When I got in the car I could see them huddled together opening the gift card and her showing her husband how much it was. She later posted on one of our community pages, thankful for the gift. This would not have been possible without all of you giving.❤️ I hope you each have a wonderful Thanksgiving however you choose to spend it this year. The last couple of days have given me great perspective into what to be thankful for.
