WSU police chief placed on paid leave
Wright State Police Chief Michael Martinsen was placed on paid administrative leave, the university said Monday.
The university is currently investigating informal allegations made against him of sexual harassment, hostile work environment, retaliation and misuse of the university’s credit card, according to a Dayton Daily News review of his personnel records.
David Finnie was named the interim chief, according to Vice President of Communications and Public Marketing George Heddleston.
Heddleston said the time it will take to investigate is still unclear.
“There is no way to know how long,” Heddleston said. “These situations come up infrequently, and when they do, each situation is resolved one way or another at its own pace.”
