MIDDLETOWN, Conn. (AP) - A Connecticut police sergeant has been placed on leave as the department conducts an investigation into complaints against him.

The Hartford Courant reports Middletown Police Sgt. Frank Scirpo has been on paid administrative leave since April following complaints against him by other officers.

Despite freedom of information requests by the newspaper, it remains unclear what the complaints are. Mayor Daniel Drew and General Counsel Brigham Smith say they can't comment. Scirpo could not be reached for comment.

Scirpo was promoted to sergeant in 2013 and has been a firearms instructor for the department.
