Former Fresno Fire Chief Rob Brown, who resigned last month while facing domestic violence charges, has a new job.
Brown is now working as a senior consultant with the Maryland-based firm of Public Safety Solutions, Inc. Brown was recently named director of the company's new office in Colorado Springs, Colo.
According to its website, Public Safety Solutions specializes in consulting services to fire and police departments, emergency medical service agencies and 911 dispatch and communications organizations.
The website describes Brown as a "recognized expert in Strategic Planning and Resource Deployment, EMS and Special Operations, organizational change and economics."
Brown resigned as Fresno fire chief on Aug. 6, just over a year into the job and nearly two months after he was arrested in a domestic violence incident. He was making $155,592 a year.
Brown on Aug. 13 pleaded no contest to two misdemeanor domestic-violence charges involving his family.
His wife, Beth Brown, is the city of Fresno's emergency manager.
Rob Brown could not be reached for comment Tuesday.
But Beth Brown said Tuesday night her husband will not be moving to Colorado Springs and that she has no plans to leave her job.
She said Rob Brown's new job will allow him to work from a home office and does not require him to be at the company's office in Colorado Springs or its headquarters in Maryland.
