SLED investigates York police chief in use-of-force incident



YORK, S.C. - The South Carolina Law Enforcement Division is investigating a use-of-force case involving York Police Chief Andy Robinson, according to a news release from the city of York. 

The city of York administration was notified of the case and contacted SLED to review the incident.

The city turned the case over to SLED because the police department does not have use-of-force review protocols involving the police chief. However, the police department does review incidents involving police officers in the department but this is not the case.

SLED will conduct its investigation without interference from the city, the news releases stated and as a result, the city will not comment on the incident. 

“Due to the recent rumors and misinformation that have surfaced concerning this matter, the city of York has decided that it is in the best interest of the city to provide this summary of the event in an effort to prevent further speculation and distortion of the facts,” the release stated.
