Eagle Police Chief placed on paid leave

Eagle Police Chief Rodger McLaughlin has been placed on paid administrative leave effective Monday, July 8.

A brief statement from Eagle Town Manager Jon Stavney notes that “Until further notice, town of Eagle Sergeant Karl J. Staufer has been appointed acting chief and will be carrying out the chief’s duties until further notice.”

The announcement came after a special executive session of the Eagle Town Board on Monday evening. The board also adjourned into executive session prior to Tuesday night’s regular meeting, citing Colorado statute providing for closed door sessions regarding personnel issues.
