COLUMBUS, Ohio — The investigation into a Columbus Police Deputy Chief's social media use has been dismissed.
In a letter from City Attorney Zach Klein to Columbus Public Safety Director Ned Pettus, Klein says there were various incidents of questionable social media use that led to complaints and investigations.
Columbus Public Safety says the investigation into the deputy chief's social media use cost a total of $13,379.02.
The city has developed a new social media policy and dropped any ongoing investigations.
The city hired the law firm BakerHostetler in a no-bid contract worth up to $50,000 allowing the law firm to investigate city workers for any violation of social media policies.
