Red Bluff Police Chief Paul Nanfito has been placed on paid administrative leave, City Manager Rick Crabtree confirmed Friday.
On December 2, 2014 the Red Bluff Peace Officers Association delivered a vote of no confidence against Nanfito to the city council. The letter they submitted alleged that Nanfito, since he took over, inflicted verbal and mental abuse on his officers.
In a news release from the city, Crabtree said "this is a confidential personnel matter and the city is prohibited from commenting further."
Captain Kyle Sanders will take over Nanfito's duties on an interim basis.
