A former high-level manager in the Denver Police Department’s crime lab quit rather than accept a demotion and a large pay cut following allegations he violated numerous city rules – including allegations that he repeatedly altered crime scene reports.

Walter J. Greene Jr., who was paid $124,891 annually as deputy director of the crime lab, resigned Feb. 3 after spending more than seven months on investigative leave, according to documents provided to 9NEWS by the Denver Department of Safety on Tuesday.

Before he resigned, Greene was told he would be demoted to a job as a photo enforcement agent at a salary of $57,940, for what was deemed “misconduct” that violated more than a dozen city rules – including bringing a gun to work, ordering employees to drive his wife home in city vehicles during storms, and making disparaging remarks about women and members of the military.
