Chicago Daily Herald

DEKALB, Ill. — Northern Illinois University Police Chief Donald Grady on Saturday was placed on administrative leave after a court found the department took part in an "egregious" and "purposeful hiding of information" in handling a sexual assault case.

Grady will be on leave pending the finalization of charges and disciplinary action, Acting Director of Public Safety Bill Nicklas said in a statement. Police chief since 2001, Grady led the force as the university dealt with campus shootings in 2008 that left five students dead.
