CAROLINA BEACH, NC (WWAY) — Carolina Beach Police Sgt. Chris Chafin is on unpaid administrative leave for time to appeal a personnel decision, the town says.
The town won’t discuss any details, but WWAY reported last week Chafin was on leave after crashing a town car.
Meanwhile, retiring Chief Kurt Bartley has been tasked to rewrite the department’s standard operating procedures manual. Interim Town Manager Bruce Shell asked for a review of the policies and he found out about Chafin’s crash and other issues.
Bartley is set to retired this month. The town has named Det. Harry Humphries interim chief. He assumed that role Friday.
