DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM) – Two high-ranking officials in the Dallas Police Department have been disciplined following an administrative investigation.

Police Chief David Brown said in a press release sent out Friday that Deputy Chiefs Andrew Acord and Chesley Williams both received verbal counseling for inaction in an evidence tampering case that lead to the firings of two other officers.

The Deputy Chiefs were disciplined for not acting as soon as they suspected that former officers Jon Llewellyn and Randolph Dillon may have falsified evidence in drug cases.

Llewellyn and Dillon have both since been fired for officer misconduct.

Chief Brown gave no indication that anything that severe might be in store for Acord and Williams.

Acord, who has been with the department since 1980, will move from the Narcotics division to the Northeast Patrol effective Monday.  Williams, who has been with the department since 1984, is assigned to the Special Projects Bureau.
