BEND, OR -- A Deschutes County Sheriff’s Lieutenant, who has been on paid administrative leave for nearly two years, will retire at the end of this month. Lt. Tim Leak was the subject of an internal affairs investigation for alleged policy violations. 


Sheriff Shane Nelson says the agency reached a settlement which closes the investigation and ensures neither side will file a lawsuit against the other. "This is a business decision I've made in this matter, and continue to move the Sheriff's Office forward. This agreement is in the best interest of the citizens we work for," Nelson tells KBND News. "We're continually learning from our past and following the course we've charted for the future. People who do not fall in line with the mission and values of this office will not work here."


Leak was placed on leave on May 17, 2016. During that time, the Sheriff's Office paid him $238,161.71. Under the terms of the agreement, he’ll receive another $33,330.
