Former Spokane interim police chief now on leave

SPOKANE -- A former Spokane interim police chief has been placed on indefinite leave.
Police spokeswoman Jennifer DeRuwe told the Spokesman-Review that Chief Frank Straub placed Scott Stephens on administrative leave on Dec. 20. That was one day before the chief announced that Stephens would head the department's efforts to earn state accreditation.
DeRuwe said Stephens was on leave due to an internal issue, not a criminal one. She declined to offer details.
Stephens has been with the Spokane Police Department since 1984.
Mayor David Condon named him interim chief in January 2012 following the departure of former Chief Anne Kirkpatrick.
