FAIRBANKS, Alaska (AP) — Fairbanks' police chief is under investigation over allegations brought by a former chief that he used his position to promote his security business.
The Fairbanks Daily News-Miner reports the city's human resources director confirmed a personnel investigation into police Chief Randall Aragon was opened Monday.
Former Chief Dan Hoffman called for the probe in a letter to the City Council that said he received a report from a business owner of "unethical activity" by Argon.
The letter alleges Aragon told the owner police could only do a brief assessment of her business after she reported property crime concerns. Aragon, who is listed as the sole proprietor of Certified Security Surveys, then allegedly offered to do a "more thorough job" himself.
Aragon says he's been advised not to comment on the matter.
