Chief Dan Oates demoted Paul Swanson, effective Friday.
An internal affairs investigation showed Swanson didn't show up to work even though he got paid for the time.
On at least once occasion when Swanson claimed to be working, the 9Wants to Know investigators have learned he was not in the City of Aurora.
An Aurora Police spokesperson declined to comment about details of the investigation.
