Police Chief Zoll Back On The Beat

by The Editors on April 7, 2009

After close to three weeks on paid administrative leave Carlsbad’s Chief of Police Thomas Zoll is back on the job, but just why he was put on that leave is still a complete mystery according to a story in the North County Times.

City spokeswoman Kristina Rey declined Monday to say what transpired during Chief Thomas Zoll’s leave, including whether there was an investigation and what prompted his reinstatement. . . City officials repeatedly have declined to say why Zoll, 58, was placed on leave on March 18, citing state laws that limit the release of information on a police officer’s performance. . . Zoll said Monday that he preferred not to comment on the situation.

According to the San Diego Union-Tribune Zoll said he would have been back last week, but that he said he “went on vacation.”

Whatever it was, apparently it is over for now, and we hope Zoll used his paid leave well.
