The Sheridan City Council held a special executive session Wednesday and discussed a specific personnel issue. In December, law enforcement responded to a domestic violence call in the City of Sheridan. One of the parties involved in the disturbance was a Sheridan police officer. Interim Police Chief Scott Chandler explains what can be released at this time.
The name of the officer in question has not been released, nor has the status of the ongoing investigation. Personnel issues are protected information under Wyoming statutes. However, any action taken by the City Council in response to the incident will have to be approved in an open meeting.
