BATON ROUGE, LA — February 1, 2019 — My heartfelt condolences go out to the family, friends, and fellow officers of Baton Rouge Police Corporal Shane Totty, who lost his life today in the line of duty. Our community mourns Cpl. Totty, one of BRPD’s best and brightest young officers who was wholly dedicated to serving the people of Baton Rouge.
Every day our men and women in blue put their lives on the line to protect the citizens of this great city. Please keep his family, friends, and fellow officers in your prayers during this extremely difficult time.
In recognition of Cpl. Totty and his service to our community, I have ordered that all flags at public buildings in East Baton Rouge Parish be flown at half-staff until his burial.
