Brockville Police Chief Scott Fraser is currently off work on sick leave, the city’s police services board has confirmed.
Board chairman King Yee, Jr., said Tuesday he could not provide specifics on the nature of the chief’s illness or injury, but said it is a “medical issue” and not major.
City officials said Fraser went on sick leave in early April.
Deputy Police Chief Mark Noonan is now in charge in Fraser’s temporary absence.
Board members were not sure when the chief will return.
“I would not anticipate too much longer,” said Noonan.
