SACRAMENTO, CA - The Twin Rivers Unified School District has placed Deputy Superintendent Ziggy Robeson on administrative leave.
The announcement follows the Sacramento Police Department's confirmation earlier this week it has been investigating the district the last two months after a district police officer-involved shooting last October. Police investigators have copied the computer files of retiring Supt. Frank Porter, according to a district spokeswoman.
As for Robeson, the district issued a statement that said "administrative leave is one of the normal procedural steps we take to remove a staff member from the immediate work environment."
Porter and Robeson oversaw the embattled district police department. The police department has been under fire multiple times for overstepping their jurisdiction.
Tyrone Smith was arrested on suspicion of shooting at a Twin Rivers police officer when the officer attempted a traffic stop. Residents believe the officer over stepped by even attempting to stop the man. Smith, later died in Sacramento police custody.
Police Chief Christopher Breck was placed on administrative leave late last year.
There have also been numerous complaints about Twin Rivers police making excessive arrests, traffic stops and vehicle tows.
