FAIRFIELD — The police chief at Solano Community College has been placed on leave and a consultant has been hired to handle operations until a hearing takes place.
Chief Steve Dawson was placed on paid administrative leave Wednesday by Solano Community College President Jowel Laguerre. Laguerre said he couldn’t discuss specifics because it was a personnel issue, but said the college is looking to revamp the department.
“He’s on leave until further notice. The final decision was mine to make,” Laguerre said Thursday. “We’ve been evaluating our service at the police for a while. We just want to make some changes.”
