Police Chief On Leave
An Upstate police chief was placed on administrative leave Friday. Woodruff Chief Darrell Dawkins is on leave with pay for 30 to 60 days. City manager Stephanie Tillerson says she's become concerned with some of the police department's policies and procedures in her two years with the city. She says the leave is disciplinary in nature. Supporters of Dawkins are rallying behind the chief. Dawkins has served as chief for nearly seven years and has been in the department since 2000.
