City officials confirmed Saturday night that Buckeye Police Chief Larry Hall has been suspended after an investigation.

The suspension is for 40 hours, according to officials. He's expected to return to work the week of Nov. 12.

The city provided the following statement:

Over the past several months, the city has been reviewing a draft report from Copeland Investigations regarding an anonymous letter sent to various city officials in Sept. 2017, to determine if any additional investigation is required.

At this time, any actions the city is taking in regard to misconduct are considered personnel matters, are subject to appeal and cannot be discussed until due process is completed per the Peace Officers Bill of Rights.
