BRUNSWICK, Ga. (AP) — The police chief for the city of Brunswick has retired after an investigation into an online training program for officers. Two other officers have resigned.

The Florida Times-Union reports that Chief Tobe Green and the two officers have been on paid administrative leave since July 15. City Manager Bill Weeks says he asked the officers for their resignations or retirement after an investigation found "inappropriate conduct" related to an online program offered by the Georgia Peace Officer Standards and Training Council.

The council in June asked police agencies across Georgia to look into a glitch in the state's online training system that allowed at least 500 officers statewide to earn training credits without spending the required number of hours.

Weeks told the newspaper he had spoken with the council.
