OMAHA, Neb. (AP) - Officials have put an Omaha Fire Department battalion chief on paid administrative leave after investigating reports he’d posted inappropriate comments on his personal Facebook page.

The fire department announced Monday that Battalion Chief Joseph Salcedo was placed on leave after an initial review by Dan Olsen, the interim fire chief, as well as the department’s internal affairs office and city human resources department.

The fire department says contractual obligations require that it can’t provide details about the investigation.

KETV reports screenshots of the Facebook page included posts involving President Barack Obama and the Black Lives Matter movement.
