Sycamore, GA (WALB) -

The Sycamore Police Chief has appealed an investigation that could cause the city's first female chief to lose her job. 

The Peace Officer Standards Council revoked Lee Ann Clark's certification for policy violations at her former job with the Ashburn Police Department.  Tuesday, the city council approved a motion to allow Clark to remain the Sycamore Police chief during the appeal. 

She said city leaders knew of the investigation when they gave her the position in July. 

"We knew this was a possibility of this happening and my city council members have decided to stand behind me and give me their support and I appreciate that.  I'm going to continue to do my job the best I can," said Chief Lee Ann Clark, Sycamore Police Department.

The chief said she's still certified during the appeals process, and said the department will continue protecting residents.

Clark has 30 days to submit her appeal, and POST will have 30 days to review it before a final decision is reached.
