The internal investigation involving newly hired City Attorney Roxann Cotroneo is being handled by the Corpus Christi Police Department.

Cotroneo is accused of making inappropriate comments to staffers at the City Attorney's Office. Last week, 3News reported that City Manager Ron Olson had recused himself from that investigation. A special unit at the CCPD handles non-criminal investigations from City Hall if it is something beyond the scope of human resources.

The investigation team is actually something that was put together back when Troy Riggs was chief of police.
