Settle resumes work at Culpeper Police Department

Because of press coverage regarding Culpeper Town Police Capt. Chris Settle, the town is taking the unusual action of providing a public statement on a personnel matter. Settle returned to work today in the town police department at the rank of captain.
The action to return Settle to work was taken by Acting Town Manager Chris Hively after a thorough evaluation of the findings of the independent investigator and consultation with the town attorney.
The independent investigator reviewed all complaints made, some of which were over two years old.
In accordance with the Police Department General Orders, the sustained complaints were deemed to be “minor” issues. Since the situation is a personnel matter, the town is unable to comment any further about the investigation or decision to return Settle to work.
