     Chief Anthony Spivey of the Chadbourn Police Department is “on leave with pay” as city government looks into “concerns about the leadership of the department,” Mayor Phillip Britt said Saturday.

     Lt. Ken Elliott is currently Interim Chief, Britt said, assuming leadership as Spivey’s status changed on Friday.

     “We are conducting an internal review,” Britt said. “It’s very early in what is going to be a long process.”

     Britt would not say what prompted the review, but emphasized that Spivey’s change of status should not be viewed as a suspension.

     “He might well be back as chief when this is finished,” Britt said. “I don’t want to pre-judge any outcome.”
