Cloquet Police Chief Steve Stracek was placed on paid administrative leave Thursday night during an emergency meeting of the Cloquet City Council, pending the results of an investigation.
The vote came after Mayor Dave Hallback and councilors closed the emergency meeting, citing state statute that allows closure for discussion “relating to allegations of law enforcement personnel misconduct.”
