BATON ROUGE, La. – October 21, 2020 – The International Association of Chiefs of Police has selected Baton Rouge Police Chief Murphy Paul for membership on its Policy Center Advisory Group as a subject-matter expert. The members of the advisory group are selected to represent a cross-section of individuals from the field of law enforcement and possess a solid, generalized knowledge of law enforcement; substantial experience in policy development; and superb critical thinking skills.
“This honor comes as no surprise as Chief Paul’s leadership and experience have received national attention for some time now. More than two years ago I selected him to lead our Baton Rouge Police Department, and I am proud he has now been selected for this prestigious international advisory group,” said Mayor-President Sharon Weston Broome. “This is yet another example of how Chief Paul is helping to create a safe, hopeful and healthy society in our community and beyond.”
For over 30 years, the IACP Law Enforcement Policy Center has been identifying leading practices and providing sound guidance to the law enforcement profession to assist in developing policies for individual departments. The Policy Center’s recent areas of focus include: COVID-19, standards of police conduct, and officer mental health and wellness.
Chief Paul’s term of membership is effective immediately and will end in October 2023.
