The City of Santa Paula is aware of the recent accusation made against the Chief of Police. In accordance with our normal course of action in such a situation, the City has engaged an independent investigator to conduct an extensive inquiry into this matter.
This investigation will remain separate from the ongoing investigation that began in March.
“To ensure both matters are thoroughly examined, these investigations are being conducted by two separate investigators,” said Dan Singer, Santa Paula City Manager. “The City prioritizes the integrity of these processes, and we will take the appropriate actions as we uncover all the facts in this matter.”
While the City understands these circumstances are very concerning, we remain committed to maintaining a healthy work environment and serving the community and our residents.
