Extension granted for investigations into suspended Victoria police chief

VICTORIA — Investigators looking into allegations of misconduct by Victoria's embattled police chief have once again been granted more time to complete their work.

The Office of the Police Complaint Commissioner has extended the timeline for a series of investigations involving Chief Frank Elsner, who allegedly sent inappropriate Twitter messages to the wife of one of his officers.

The reviews were scheduled to be done by Friday, but investigators asked for more time and were granted an extension until Nov. 30.

This is the second extension investigators have received, after they asked for more time in June.

Elsner stepped aside from his duties last December pending the results of two investigations into his conduct, but was suspended in April after yet another investigation was announced.

The third investigation was launched when new information surfaced containing allegations of false statements and the deletion of data, with the deputy police complaint commissioner saying Elsner faces 11 allegations of misconduct.
