Monroe Police Chief Ron Schleuter has been placed on administrative leave with pay in connection with allegations he secretly recorded conversations and meetings he had with city officials, including Mayor Jamie Mayo.

Mayo and Schleuter met Tuesday afternoon for the first time since last Thursday when the story first broke.

An internal investigation into the recordings and possible violation of departmental policy will be
conducted by the city's officials.

Since an internal investigation is under way, Mayo said there will be no further media announcements until the conclusion of a hearing for Schleuter.
