SUNRIVER, OR -- The Sunriver Service District placed its police chief on paid administrative leave this week, although authorities have not released details as to why. KBND News confirms Oregon Attorney General Ellen Rosenblum's office is investigating allegations against Chief Marc Mills.


Bend Police Captain Cory Darling has been appointed interim Chief during the Investigation, with approval from Bend PD Chief Jim Porter.
Mills became Sunriver's chief in 2012 after nearly four decades with the Deschutes county Sheriff's Office where he worked his way up to the rank of Captain.
Deschutes County District Attorney John Hummel issued the following statement, Thursday: “Attorney General Ellen Rosenblum is heading the fact gathering phase of the investigation into the allegation against Sunriver Police Chief Marc Mills. Once she completes her work she will provide me with the facts as determined by her investigation and I will decide whether to initiate criminal charges. I will comment further when the Attorney General completes her investigation.”
