Plans for new BRPD deputy chiefs put on hold
BATON ROUGE, LA (NBC33) — Baton Rouge Police Chief Dewayne White says his plans to hire three deputy chiefs are on hold.
White had planned to hire the deputy chief to increase accountability in the department. But according to reports, the police union says it would have been more difficult for officers to be promoted.
Chief White would have cut seven captain positions to pay for the deputy chief slots.
