DEKALB COUNTY, Ga. -- Two DeKalb County police officers have been placed on paid administrative leave after an investigation revealed they ran a background check on President Barack Obama.


A representative for the DeKalb County CEO’s office identified the officers as Ryan White and C.M. Route.


Officials said Obama’s name was typed into a computer inside a DeKalb County police car on July 20 and ran through the National Crime Information Center.


The secret service was immediately notified and contacted the DeKalb County Police Department.


A representative said both officers have been with the department less than five years.


A representative said one of the officers denied involvement.


An official investigation is being conducted by the DeKalb County Police Department’s Internal Affairs division.


It is unclear why the officers ran a check on the president.
