On Friday, Oakley Interim City Manager Josh McMurray confirmed that Oakley Police Chief Dean Capelletti has been placed on administrative leave.
The details surrounding the leave are not being released and McMurray directed all questions to go through the City Attorney as there is an open investigation.
Its unclear if anyone else in the police department is on leave or anyone else in the city is on leave.
At least two Oakley City Councilmembers confirmed the administrative leave, but both said they were provided no details by city staff on the reasoning behind it. They said they were informed Tuesday prior to the City Council meeting.
Chief Capelletti was sworn into the position on Sept. 28, 2020 after serving as a police captain from La Habra Police Department. He was with the police department since 2002.
