New chief officially takes reins
“We do need more room,” Rogers said in reference to the current RPD home at City Hall.
If more space is allotted, Rogers said the department might be able to move forward and hire additional officers and dispatchers.
“We receive more calls than we did 5 years ago,” he said, “and it would be cramped to put another dispatcher in there.”
Rogers said he would like to work with Ruston Mayor Dan Hollingsworth and the aldermen on obtaining another facility that leaves room for expansion, since the city is growing by leaps and bounds.
