Plum police Chief Frank Monaco has an undisclosed illness and is not on the job.

“He is ill and will be out for a few weeks,” Mayor Richard Hrivnak said Tuesday.

Hrivnak declined to disclose additional details about Monaco's condition.

In Monaco's absence, Lt. Jeffrey Armstrong, second-in-command, is directing the daily operation of the 25-man department, Hrivnak said.

“He takes on those responsibilities in the chief's absence,” Hrivnak said. “He is a fine police officer who is respected by the administration and the rank-and-file officers.”

Monaco has been chief for five years.
