Santa Paula Puts Police Chief On Paid Administrative Leave

Posted on Tuesday, April 17, 2012 2:17pm


A Ventura County community has put its police chief on paid administrative leave, and city officials aren’t saying why. Santa Paula City Manager Jaime Fontes put Police Chief Steve MacKinnon on paid administrative leave today.

Because it’s a personnel matter, city officials aren’t commenting on the action.

MacKinnon has been the city’s police chief since November of 2005.

The City Council is expected to look at the issue at its next scheduled meeting, which is May 7th.
