DENVER (AP) - Denver Sheriff Gary Wilson has ordered the department’s roughly 730 deputies and their supervisors to undergo training in law enforcement ethics and maintaining public trust.

The Denver Post reports (https://bit.ly/1e5sd1G ) the courses, spurred by several recent misconduct issues, will be part of the 40 hours of training deputies receive yearly. Other topics will include how to cope with job stress and identify fellow employees who are struggling.

The changes come after the sudden resignation of former Division Chief Michael Than during a misconduct investigation and a report from the city’s independent monitor that found the department failed to investigate dozens of serious allegations against deputies.

Last week, a former deputy was sentenced to six years in prison for helping an inmate escape, and another was charged with contributing to the delinquency of minors.
