ALBERT LEA, Minn. – Freeborn County says Sheriff’s Deputy Dale Glazier has been cleared of alleged misconduct.
Glazier was placed on paid leave March 31st, the same day he filed to run for county sheriff. The Rochester Police Department investigated an accusation that Glazier interjected himself into an Albert Lea Police investigation of an alleged assault involving juveniles. Glazier reportedly had some relationship with the juveniles in the case.
Freeborn County says the investigation into this matter has been completed and the complaint against Glazier was not sustained, no discipline is warranted and the recommendation is that Deputy Glazier should return to work.
“The recommendation was that he return to work, so from that standpoint, it will be back to normal. We’ll be fully staffed down there once again and Deputy Glazier can function as a patrol deputy for Freeborn County,” said Freeborn County Administrator John Kluever.
The final report has not been delivered to the county and further information will be available at a later date.
