The police chief for Desert Hot Springs has been put on paid administrative leave for an investigation into possible misconduct, but officials will not say what the probe entails.

Dale Mondary, who has been the city’s police chief since 2015, was placed on leave about 2 p.m. Monday, city spokeswoman Doria Wilms said. Wilms said the investigation was a personnel matter but would not say more.

Deputy Chief Jim Henson will step in for Mondary in the meantime, she said.
