On Friday, Newberg-Dundee Police Department said Police Chief Brian Casey is back on the job after being put on administrative leave.

Last week, City Manager Jacque Betz had put Chief Casey on administrative leave for unknown reasons. 

According to the Yamhill Co. District Attorney's Office, since the time Casey was put on leave, witnesses and information have come forth that have raised questions about the propriety of the conduct of Betz, some of which may involve the violation of criminal statutes. 

A few days after Chief Casey was put on leave, Newberg's City Council voted to put Betz on administrative leave.

Chief Manager Betz remains on administrative leave until the City Council knows more about the criminal investigation.

Oregon State Police and the Marion County District Attorney's Office are now investigating.
