Several anonymous email complaints -- against Roy City Police Chief Greg Whinham -- have prompted the city council there, to place the 29-year department veteran on paid administrative leave.

Mayor Joe Ritchie says the complaints may all be from the same person.  But until they are investigated, the chief will remain on leave.

Whinham began working at the department in 1984.  He has been the police chief since 2001.

Neither the mayor or chief are discussing specifics of the email complaints.
