FORT COLLINS, Colo. (AP) - A Fort Collins police officer who was arrested after investigators say he used agency resources to stalk a woman will be monitored by GPS.

The Coloradoan reports (https://noconow.co/1v6xMTh ) 29-year-old Jarett Edgar Branson appeared in court Tuesday, and prosecutors argued that GPS monitoring would make it possible to put an exclusion zone around the alleged victim’s home and work.

Police say a woman reported “inappropriate behavior” by Branson, telling investigators he contacted her multiple times at work and home while he was on duty. Branson allegedly used police resources to find out where the woman worked and lived in an effort to start a relationship with her.

He was fired Sept. 16 after he was charged with stalking, criminal trespass and official misconduct.

Branson worked as a police officer in Butte, Montana, before being hired in Fort Collins in January.
