Borough hired consultant to investigate workplace bullying in police department


February 15, 2018

The Petersburg borough attorney hired a consultant last year to conduct an investigation into allegations of workplace bullying within the police department.

The borough attorney paid Russell Consulting LLC, a company based in Soldotna, $7,200 to conduct a four-day investigation into allegations of workplace bullying coming from the police chief.

Steve Giesbrecht, the borough manager, said Police Chief Kelly Swihart would not be embarrassed by the outcome of the investigation.

“Accusations were not substantiated, I can say that,” Giesbrecht said. “There was nothing going on.”
