Cambridge Police Chief Tim Dwyer has been put on administrative leave, according to a posting on Facebook.
The posting is on the City of Cambridge Information page; the page says it is administered by former City Council Member Howard Lewis.
The chief “was escorted out of City Hall on Friday. Nobody at City Hall is giving any information including the Mayor and City Council members. The Chief is under a ‘gag order,’ ” said the Facebook post.
No other information was given.
City administrator Lynda Woulfe could not be reached for comment Sunday afternoon. She confirmed to an Isanti County newspaper that the information was correct but said she could not release any more information.
The Cambridge Police Department currently has 14 officers, which include the chief, three sergeants, eight patrol officers and two school resource officers. The department provides 24-hour police coverage for the city of almost 9,000 residents.
Dwyer has been chief since 2013; previously he was a captain in the Ramsey Police Department.
