Bastrop’s Chief of Police, Allen Campbell, appeared in court today after petitioning for a temporary restraining order against the Civil Service Board.
In court documents, Chairperson of the board, Marvin Holmes, is accusing Chief Campbell of engaging in illegal political activities in February.
The board started an investigation but had to put it on hold after the injunction was filed by Chief Campbell.
On Monday, the judge ruled in favor of the defendant, the Civil Service Board.
Now the board will proceed with the investigation and determine whether to terminate Campbell’s position as Chief of Police.
