The Burlington (VT) Police Department keeps getting mired in social media scandals, and is appointing its third chief in a week as two have been forced to resign when underground Twitter, Facebook and Instagram accounts surfaced.

The first casualty was Brandon del Pozo, who resigned as chief after it came out that he was using a fake Twitter account to heckle activists who were critical of the city, reported WCAX-TV. Stepping in to take his place was casualty number two, Jan Wright, who was shortly after put on paid administrative leave after it emerged that she had a fake Facebook account to interact with the public, WCAX reported.

Deputy Chief Jon Murad is serving while newly appointed Jennifer Morrison prepares to step in as interim police chief in January, pending city council approval, the New York Daily News reports.
