JUNCTION CITY, Ore. (AP) - Junction City Police Chief Mark Chase returns to duty Monday after more than five months on paid administrative leave.

City administrator Melissa Bowers says the move follows an investigation into formal complaints made by members of the department. She declined to provide specifics, saying the complaints were all personnel matters.

Contact information for Chase outside of the police department was unavailable.

Chase came to Junction City in 2009 from the Salem Police Department.

The Register-Guard reports (https://is.gd/RRCwyE ) that Chase’s return comes as Bowers prepares to leave. She announced in December that she was resigning from the job in mid-February. She cited personal and family issues as the reason for her departure.

Her replacement has yet to be chosen.
