CSN police chief returns to post

The College of Southern Nevada’s police chief is back on duty after a six-week absense, it was announced today.

Chief Sandy Seda was placed on paid administrative leave Dec. 12. College officials would not comment then or today on why Seda was on leave, saying it was a personnel matter. CSN President Michael Richards has said Seda’s situation was not directly related to the criminal indictment of Bob Gilbert, the college’s facilities manager, or three of his deputies.

During Seda’s leave, Deputy Chief Daniel Bennett served as interim chief. Seda was hired in 2002 and earns $120,000 annually.
