Probe into Monroe police chief ordered

A city board has voted to open an investigation of Monroe Police Chief Ron Schleuter.

The probe stems from Schleuter secretly recording a meeting he had with Mayor Jamie Mayo before Lt. Virgil Parker was demoted to corporal.

Parker had complained that the chief and another officer used electronic surveillance to illegally spy on him.

Mayo put Schleuter on administrative leave with pay in February.

As police chief, Schleuter is protected by state civil service laws, meaning he can appeal any firing by the mayor.
