ORLAND HILLS, Ill. (AP) — A suburban Chicago police chief has been fired over a social media post.
Longtime Orland Hills Chief Thomas Scully was fired Wednesday after a post on his personal Facebook page that village leaders say they cannot tolerate.
The village says the post “is in incredibly poor taste” and doesn’t reflect the values of the community. The details of the post are unclear at this time.
Orland Hills’ deputy chief will take over until the village finds a permanent replacement for Scully. Scully served as chief for 15 years.
