SANDY — Sandy Police Chief Kevin Thacker was fired Tuesday after an investigation into multiple reports of “inappropriate and unprofessional behavior” within the police department, Sandy Mayor Kurt Bradburn said.

The decision came a little more than three weeks after Thacker was placed on leave while an independent firm investigated claims of sexual misconduct brought forward by multiple employees to the city’s human resources department.

“We recently received the findings of the investigation and discovered there were multiple collaborating individuals who witnessed Chief Thacker engaged in inappropriate touching and unprofessional conduct with employees,” Bradburn said during a press conference held at the Sandy City Council building. “The report determined that this behavior led to a negative working environment in the police department.”

Sandy Deputy Police Chief William O’Neal, who was named acting police chief when Thacker was placed on leave, will remain in that position until a new chief is found.
