FIRST ON 3: Leland Town Council reveals Chief Jayne placed on probation in Sept., forced to pay restitution
LELAND, NC (WWAY) — During a meeting Thursday night, the Leland Town Council announced that Police Chief Tim Jayne has been on probation for months.
During the meeting, leaders revealed that on September 15 Jayne received a written reprimand and was ordered to pay restitution for use of a town-owned vehicle. He was also placed on six months probation “for management actions inconsistent with Town of Leland personnel policies and professional management standards,” according to our news partners at the Local News Review.
Jayne was also ordered to adhere to the personnel policy in the future and develop an action plan.
Town Council allowed the Town Manager to release the personnel matter citing North Carolina General Statute § 162A-6.1 (7), which allows the release of such information if it means maintaining public confidence in a public agency.
