A spokesperson for the Fredericton Police Force confirmed that police are investigating a complaint of “financial irregularities” at the Fredericton Fire Department.
“That complaint was forwarded by management to us,” said Alycia Bartlett, public information officer.
Bartlett said she cannot provide further information since there is an investigation taking place.
But Chris MacPherson, chief administrative officer of the City of Fredericton, confirmed the investigation is focused on a single fire department employee who has been suspended with pay.
“The Police investigation will determine if anything criminal has occurred,” MacPherson said.
