UPDATE: Kevin E. Browning, the Human Resources Manager of the city of Fort Pierce says the suggested disciplinary action for Police Chief Diane Hobley-Burney is suspension or termination.
Thomas Bakkedahl , the Chief Assistant State Attorney in the 19th Judicial Circuit, has told WPTV that his office has no information at this time to warrant criminal charges against Fort Pierce Police Chief Diane Hobley-Burney.
The chief was placed on paid administrative leave after complaints against her from a former Fort Pierce Police Special Investigator.
Those allegations included that she didn’t properly investigate police violations, put the police department at risk for losing its accreditation and intimidated members of the community.
The chief addressed the allegations in a recent interview with NewsChannel 5's Meghan McRoberts.
