RPD requests to add Dpy. chief
Ruston Police Chief Steve Rogers might soon have a bigger say in who he wants to be his second in command.
During a City Council special-called meeting to introduce the 2010-11 budget last night, aldermen also introduced an ordinance that would allow the creation of a deputy chief of police position within the city of Ruston.
If aldermen approve the ordinance at their September meeting, the ball will start rolling to get someone in a three-year term for the department’s No. 2 spot.
