Carlsbad Police Chief On Administrative Leave

by The Editors on March 27, 2009

Tom ZollCarlsbadistan’s Police Chief Tom Zoll, 58, has been placed on administrative leave “pending an investigation” according to a story in the San Diego Union-Tribune.

Capt. Mike Shipley has been the acting chief since March 18, Kristina Ray, the city’s communications manager, said yesterday. . . . “It’s a personnel matter, and the city cannot comment,” she said. . . .Councilman Keith Blackburn, a former Carlsbad police officer, said, “All I know was our chief was placed on administrative leave pending an investigation.” . . .Zoll’s stewardship of the Police Department has seen little to no public controversy since he was hired in 2003. He is known for an easygoing style and dry sense of humor. . . .Contacted at his Carlsbad home yesterday afternoon, Zoll politely said he had no comment.

Guess we’ll find out more as the story develops.
