JACKSON TWP.: Township trustees late Tuesday said Police Chief David Zink has been suspended for a month.
Zink had been on paid administrative leave for the past 10 days, pending the outcome of an investigation trustees have described only as related to “a personnel matter.”
“After reading and hearing the independent report from the out-of-county investigator, the board of trustees has determined that Chief Zink will serve a one-month suspension, pay back the township for the time he was on administrative leave, and participate in training and counseling,” the township said in a written statement Tuesday.
Zink has been chief in the department since 2010.
