Hodgenville Police Chief Steven Johnson was suspended with pay earlier this month after being charged with official misconduct.
He returned to work last week in a “limited” capacity, according to Mayor Kenny DeVore.
His job duties include public safety and code enforcement. His police powers are restored in emergency situations or when requested by acting-Chief Marcus Jackson or Mayor DeVore – or if he witnesses a crime.
Mayor DeVore said he “ran it by the attorneys” before bringing Johnson back to the force.
