Top Sonoma County CHP officer under investigation

The top CHP officer in Sonoma County, Capt. Greg Tracey, has been relieved of his duties while the agency conducts an investigation into issues that include his management practices, say several law enforcement sources.

Tracey, 54, was placed on administrative leave March 8.

Complaints have included allegations of favoritism, threatening and retaliatory behavior.

As head of the California Highway Patrol's Sonoma County office, Tracey is akin to a police chief and oversees the third-largest law enforcement agency in Sonoma County.

Napa CHP Capt. Chris Childs currently is filling Tracey's position as commander of the office in Rohnert Park, CHP spokeswoman Diana McDermott said.
