STINNETT, Texas —  A West Texas police chief is on administrative leave Tuesday while the City of Stinnett investigates him for possible violations of the City’s employment policy. 

According to a statement from Stinnett City Manager Durk Downs, the City “is aware of the current situation surrounding Chief of Police Jason Collier” and is taking the matter very seriously. 

This comes a day after a woman made a post on Facebook alleging she and Collier had an affair. 

According to Downs, per city policy, he is prohibited from commenting on any personal issues of personnel in a public forum. 

Collier was named Stinnett police chief in February 2020. Stinnett is a town in the Texas Panhandle 60 miles north of Amarillo, Texas.
