STATEMENT BY THE MAYOR-PRESIDENT

BATON ROUGE, LA — April 24, 2019 — The results of the BRPD pay study indicate a significant pay disparity when compared to peer police forces.


I have directed my administration to identify savings to provide additional financial resources to our police department. Our efficiency experts are currently analyzing BRPD operations to identify cost savings and to ensure the department is running as efficiently as possible.


Over the past two years my administration has directed nearly $20 million dollars in new vehicles, radios, public safety equipment, and body camera equipment toward BRPD to support the department and its officers. I will continue to support our police department and its men and women in blue who put their lives on the line for us on a daily basis. They deserve to be compensated in line with their peers, and my administration is working diligently to address the disparity in their compensation.
