Loveland Police Officer Arrested on Multiple Charges Following Alleged Sexual Assault of Teenager at Park

A Loveland police officer is facing multiple felonies and misdemeanors after being accused of sexually assaulting a teenager at a park over the summer. The incident was reported to the Loveland Police Department on October 23 by a 15-year-old girl and her family. Loveland Police Chief Tim Doran confirmed the allegations on Monday, stating that the officer had contacted the girl while on duty and sexually assaulted her. The officer has been identified as Dylan Miller.

Upon receiving the report, the Loveland Police Department reached out to the Larimer County Sheriff’s Office to lead the investigation. The district attorney’s office was also alerted. The victim participated in an in-depth interview on October 26, providing crucial information that helped determine the date and location of the alleged crime.

According to Larimer County Sheriff John Feyen, their investigation revealed that Miller had contacted the victim and several others during a traffic stop in late July. A few days later, Miller allegedly approached the victim and her friend at a Loveland park after dark. He instructed the friend to leave, leaving him alone with the 15-year-old. It was during this time that Miller allegedly sexually assaulted her in a secluded area of the park.

Following the issuance of an arrest warrant, Miller was taken into custody on Monday. He now faces charges of first-degree kidnapping, sexual assault on a child by a person in a position of trust, unlawful sexual contact by a peace officer, sexual assault, official oppression, and first-degree official misconduct.

Loveland Police Chief Tim Doran expressed his support for the victim and emphasized the department’s commitment to holding those who victimize children accountable. Miller, who was hired by the Loveland Police Department in 2022, has been fired.

The Larimer County Sheriff’s Office is concerned that there may be other victims and is urging them to come forward. Anonymous tips can be provided to Crime Stoppers of Larimer County at 970-221-6868.
