“The information is very limited as to what we can share,” San Mateo police spokesperson Alison Gilmore said. “We don’t want to do anything that will compromise the ongoing investigative process.”
Cole was booked in a San Mateo County jail Nov. 3 and is no longer in custody after posting bond Nov. 4, the San Mateo County Sheriff’s Office’s corrections division told SFGATE.
The San Francisco Police Department said Cole joined the department on Jan. 24, 1994. Cole most recently worked for the field operations bureau and on Nov. 4, he was put on unpaid leave pending an internal investigation, SFPD said.
