The police force tasked with protecting students at the Uvalde Consolidated Independent School District in Texas has been suspended, a decision sparked by fierce criticisms over their response to the mass shooting at Robb Elementary earlier this year and recent hiring controversies.

“As a result of recent developments, Lt. Miguel Hernandez and Ken Mueller have been placed on administrative leave, and the District has made the decision to suspend all activities of the Uvalde CISD Police Department for a period of time,” a statement from the district said.

Hernandez was charged with leading the department amid fallout from the mass shooting at Robb Elementary in May, while Mueller served as the Uvalde Consolidated Independent School District’s director of student services.

“Ken Mueller has elected to retire,” school officials added.
