IN MY LITTLE TOWN: Police chief admits to calling own officers to respond to domestic violence call at his house.

The Monument officers had to respond outside of their jurisdiction to get there. It was eventually decided that no charges would be filed in connection to the incident.

Over the last several weeks, 11 News has reached out multiple times to Chief Owens and Monument Town Manager Mike Foreman but both have said they have no comment.

Body camera footage from a responding El Paso County Deputy starts with the moments the first deputy arrived and the last Monument police officer was about to leave.

Mark Owens was appointed as the interim police chief after the previous chief’s abrupt retirement earlier this year. After deputies investigated the alleged domestic violence call, no arrests or charges were made.

Monument Police body camera footage obtained by 11 News shows Owens sitting outside after a domestic violence call was phoned into 911.

“Another crazy Monument chief,” Owens jokes with one of his officers wearing the camera.

Good grief.
