Carlsbad Police Not Talking About Chief's Leave

Posted: Updated:

City officials continued to refuse to tell the public anything about an investigation involving Carlsbad police Chief Tom Zoll, who has been placed on leave.

"It's a personnel matter, and under California law the city cannot comment," Carlsbad communications manager Kristina Ray said.

Capt. Mike Shipley has been acting chief since March 18, she confirmed.

Asked how long Zoll would likely be on leave and whether the city will make any announcement when the investigation is complete, Ray reiterated that she could not comment.

Mayor Bud Lewis, Councilman Keith Blackburn, the Carlsbad police union and Zoll himself also have decline to provide any information on the issue.

Zoll, 58, became Carlsbad's police chief in 2003 after spending 31 years with the county Sheriff's Department.

It was unclear if he is being paid while on leave.
