GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) - The Green Bay police chief says two officers have resigned and a handful others face disciplinary action amid allegations of harassment and inappropriate remarks at work.

Chief Andrew Smith says the allegations involve a small group of officers “who together created a hostile work environment.” The Green Bay Press-Gazette reports (https://gbpg.net/2leOtxb ) that Smith disclosed the issue in January to the city’s Police and Fire Commission. He told officials it involved the department’s night shift and that the investigation began after an employee raised concerns in December.

Smith said at a news conference Friday that an investigation is still ongoing and may take months to complete.

Smith did not elaborate on the content of the inappropriate remarks but says some were “racial in nature.”

The names of officers involved were not disclosed.
