The Killeen Police Department has reinstated an officer that was put on administrative leave after an incident with a 9-year-old at Bellaire Elementary School.

The officer restrained the boy in May after he caused a disturbance, and the officer was put on leave after the boy was found with minor injuries.

The Bell County District Attorney’s Office advised there was insufficient evidence to support criminal charges.

In another internal investigation, it was determined that the officer did not violate any city or department policies.

After both findings, the officer will be reinstated to full duty.
