Venice, Florida (AP) --

Authorities are investigating allegations of eavesdropping on police employees -- a request that was made by the
Venice Police Chief herself.

Florida Department of Law Enforcement spokesman Keith Kameg said
Thursday, Sept. 30 that Police Chief Julie Williams asked the agency to
investigate an "unauthorized interception of oral
communications." FDLE has not named the focus of the
investigation.

Reports indicate Williams is heard in one recording indicating she is recording and monitoring police employees and is more "powerful than the president of the United States."

Williams has declined to comment as the investigation continues.

The city manager says he was not notified by Williams of her
request and plans to evaluate her job performance.
