The chief for the embattled Twin Rivers Unified School District police force has been placed on administrative leave.
Christopher Breck, who has been chief since spring 2008, was placed on leave on Wednesday. A police department spokesman said he could not provide any more information because the matter is a personnel issue.
Breck was placed on leave the same day it was learned that the police force would curtail traffic stops and vehicle tows. The policy change comes after a rocky few weeks for the department.
An officer was shot by a suspect during a traffic stop. The suspect later died in custody of Sacramento police.
Community members have questioned why the school district officers were making traffic stops and vehicle stops that appeared unrelated to school business.
