BRUNSWICK, Ga. (AP) — The police chief for the city of Brunswick has been suspended amid an investigation into an online training program for officers.

The Brunswick News reports (http://bit.ly/1oV411Y ) Chief Tobe (TOE-bee) Green and another officer, Capt. Mike Melton, have been placed on administrative leave. City Manager Billy Weeks said Friday they will remain suspended pending the outcome of an internal investigation requested by the Georgia Peace Officer Standards and Training Council.

The council in June asked police agencies across Georgia to look into a glitch in the state's online training system that allowed at least 500 officers statewide to earn training credits without spending the required number of hours.

Weeks would not give further details on the investigation involving the police chief. The newspaper said Green did not return phone calls.
