POLSON, Mont. -

The board that sets employment and training standards for law enforcement officers is requiring the Polson police chief and one of his officers to attend ethics training.
The Missoulian reports (http://bit.ly/WKPQQc ) the Montana Public Safety Officer Standards and Training Council set the conditions that allow Police Chief Wade Nash and Officer Cory Anderson to keep their certifications.
The council investigated Nash for allegedly intimidating a witness in a 2010 Fish, Wildlife and Parks investigation into whether Lake County law enforcement officers were involved in poaching. Nash also must attend training in evidence procedures after he reportedly illegally accepted a gun for running a sale of weapons seized as evidence.
Anderson also must comply with any recommendations from a chemical dependency evaluator after an investigation into incidents involving alcohol, including a car crash and domestic abuse.
