DECATUR, Ala. (AP) - Authorities say an investigation into a Decatur police officer who made controversial social media posts about the recent presidential election is closed.

Decatur Police Chief Nate Allen tells the Decatur Daily (https://bit.ly/2hqKKKn ) that the department’s spokesman is receiving sensitivity awareness counseling but the incident and investigation will not affect his job.

The investigation of Lt. Proncey Robertson started late last month after comments he made on Facebook referencing President Barack Obama, President-elect Donald Trump, Muslims and the Ku Klux Klan.

Robertson is the department’s public information officer. He’s also the chairman of the Lawrence County Republican party.
