FAIRBORN, Ohio (WDTN) - Wright State University is investigating allegations made against its police chief Mike Martinsen.
Chief Martinsen is on paid leave while the university looks into the allegations, according to Vice President of Communications and Marketing George Heddleson.
2 NEWS obtained both a letter to Chief Martinsen outlining the reason he has been placed on leave as well as his personnel file.
The letter from university officials to Martinsen lists four allegations against him, but it also says a formalized written complaint has not been filed yet by the two people making the allegations.
University officials stressed the allegations are only accusations at this point.
Chief Martinsen’s personnel file contains numerous commendations and his most recent employee evaluation was positive with the chief receiving top grades in many categories. His final score on the review was enough to qualify for a raise.
Martinsen has been chief since 2008. Before that he was chief of Ohio University's police force. He's also worked at the Hamilton Police Department.
Martinsen left his gun in a bathroom in 2012 where it was found by a student, but no disciplinary action was taken against him by the university.
2 NEWS contacted Martinsen who said he didn't think it would be appropriate to comment on the allegations at this time.
