The police department in Tennessee, which was shaken by the scandal involving Maegan Hall's sexually explicit behavior, is conducting an extensive search for its next chief of police.
Officials announced in a press release that the city of La Vergne initiated a countrywide hunt for a new police chief, following the removal of the previous chief, Burrell "Chip" Davis, due to the scandalous sexual activities that occurred under his supervision.
According to an internal investigation conducted in a Nashville suburb, a 26-year-old police officer named Hall, who was married, engaged in sexual activities with six other police officers, including an ongoing affair with a sergeant and a threesome involving another officer and his spouse.
As per the investigation, Davis not only had knowledge about the sexual encounters but also made jokes about them and exchanged explicit pictures of Hall using a secret burner phone which he referred to as "Ole Boy."
Former chief Daniel Hahn is involved in the process of finding the disgraced police chief's replacement.
"Since our police chief position has been open I've tasked our HR department with finding a recruiting company to assist us with this nationwide search," La Vergne Mayor Jason Cole said in the release."
"This first step in the process will ensure we have a good vision for what expectations our community and department [have] for the next police chief," Cole said.
As a consequence of the scandal, Hall, Davis, and five other police officers lost their jobs, while three others were suspended.
Last month, Hall filed a federal civil rights lawsuit against the city, Davis, and two other police officers, alleging that she was subjected to "sexual grooming" by officers on the all-male late shift.
During a subsequent television interview, Hall stated that she was "sexualized" in the small department and revealed that she was persuaded into having an affair with Sergeant Lewis Powell.
"I know what most people are saying," she told WTVF. "You know, 'You could've said no.' I get it. But my response to them is, 'I did say no, and he wouldn't take it for an answer.'
"Eventually I gave in from pressure," Hall said.
Earlier this month, The Post disclosed that Davis had openly made jests about the affair and had even shared a 13-minute video purportedly depicting Hall in the act of masturbating.
In a text conversation with Davis, the now-dismissed Sgt. Ty McGowan made a remark about Hall's physique, stating that she had a "tight little ass," to which the former chief responded with a simple "Yep."
The scandal erupted when Hall disclosed that she was feeling suicidal and had voluntarily admitted herself to a nearby hospital. Following this, city officials were made aware of the sexually explicit occurrences.
City officials in La Vergne have refused to comment on Hall's lawsuit.
