The Town and Country Police Department confirmed via Facebook last week that Fowle had been employed by them and was facing charges. The department said it’s been in contact with the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office “and has no reason at the present time to believe any alleged incidents occurred while Jordan Fowle was on duty or otherwise acting in the official capacity of a Town and Country Police Officer.”

According to court documents obtained from FOX 2, Fowle is linked to several sex crimes between August 2012 and July 2023, with two victims. The crimes are said to have occurred at Fowle’s House Springs residence.

Per court documents, Fowle caused “emotional distress” to both victims, and one had “several long-term stays at mental health facilities” after the reported crimes.

A separate Facebook post from the Town and Country Police Department noted that Fowle first started working for the department in 1995 and was promoted to sergeant in 2020.
