SALT LAKE CITY (AP) - Salt Lake City Police Chief Chris Burbank has confirmed that a deputy chief has been on paid administrative leave since November for allegedly violating the city’s harassment policy.

Burbank says the matter concerning Deputy Chief Rick Findlay has not been concluded.

But the chief declined to elaborate in a statement issued Friday, citing confidentiality rules in personnel matters.

The Salt Lake City Police Department has seven deputy chiefs. Findlay is chief of the investigative bureau that oversees most major crimes in the city.

Findlay joined the police department in 1994.

Under city policy, harassment based on a person’s sex, race, age, religion, disability, ancestry or national origin is forbidden.
