Red Rocks Community College Police Officer David Delaney was placed on administrative leave back in July in connection with the child pornography charge following a heads up by the Golden Police Department (GPD). The dept informed the college that Delaney was under a criminal investigation in relation to a sex crime.

During the course of the investigation, detectives became aware of Delaney’s plan to leave the country. Investigators had to act fast to obtain an arrest warrant for Delaney as they continue to build the case against him. As the investigation continued, more charges could be added to his case. They had to move quickly because the U. S. does not have an extradition treaty with Taiwan. A warrant for sexual exploitation of child, a class 4 felony, was obtained and police nabbed him at the Denver International Airport. Delaney did not resist and went quietly with the detectives.

“There was concern, since he’s been out of the country before,” Golden police Capt. Joe Harvey said. “We wanted to make sure we didn’t lose the ability to charge him and put him into the justice system.”

He was booked into the Jefferson County Detention Facility where he later posted bond. According to Denver CBS, he “posted a $60,000 cash/surety bond Tuesday morning but was awaiting a GPS tracking device.”

The GPD was ordered by the court to take and keep the pedo-cop’s passport citing him being an obvious flight risk and the nature of the crime. Delaney was ordered to have no internet access and ordered to not leave the state without prior approval and consent of the court.

He has worked for Red Rocks Community College since July 2017, authorities said.
