Ontario Provincial Police had charged Chief Jean Paul "JP" Levesque with breach of trust and obstructing justice last year. CBC Thunder Bay reports that Levesque was accused of disclosing confidential information about Mayor Keith Hobbs, but a justice dismissed the charges against him Thursday.

Thunder Bay's Police Services Board announced Friday that it had voted unanimously to revoke Levesque's earlier suspension.

"The Board is extremely grateful to Acting Chief Sylvie Hauth and Acting Deputy Chief Don Lewis for their outstanding work in the absence of the Chief," said Police Services Board Chair, Jackie Dojack.

Levesque will return to the job on Monday, Jan. 29.
