CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) - Now you see him, now you don't. Where's the police chief?

A police chief is the face of his or her department.  The leader -- an example who sets the tone and the agenda for the troops.

What is concerning to some on the job are the work habits of a local police chief. Showing up late, patrolling out of uniform and even working second employment in a city-issued vehicle while on the taxpayer's dime.

The chief spends a lot of the day patrolling the village. Despite our efforts, we found he is nearly impossible to find patrolling. Cleveland 19 obtained photos from sources and video of our own. Lots of days where the chief's at home, with the city's car parked in the driveway. Also, to get into the police department, officers have to use an electronic fob. The chief says he doesn't have to, but it's the only way in.

Orlousky took a ride to see for himself – Watch it Thursday night at 11 p.m.
