The investigation into embattled Victoria Police chief Frank Elsner will carry out a little longer.
The Office of the Police Complaint Commissioner granted a request from Chief Superintendent Sean Bourrie for an extension.
The OPCC says the investigation was supposed to expire tomorrow but the 60-day extension will give investigators until mid-September to complete.
Chief Superintendent Bourrie made the request at the end of May, saying 125 investigative tasks have been completed but Bourrie identified more steps needed to be taken to thoroughly investigate allegations.
The OPCC says it will not comment on further details regarding the extension.
Elsner is already being investigated for five allegations of breach of trust, after sending inappropriate social media messages to the wife of one of his officers.
