Mayor Normand began the discussion on police training. Police Chief Emmett Worley described the need for attending the Governor’s Conference on Juvenile Justice to be held September 2–4, 2003, as the law requires one police officer or the police chief to be trained in handling juvenile matters. He and Council Members also discussed the need to send two experienced officers to a three-day school on traffic investigation in Lafayette October 6—8, 2003; hotel lodging would not be needed. Further, the requirement for Patrolman Dexter Walker to attend P.O.S.T. Academy was discussed. Council Member Chris Kershaw moved to approve these three training requests, to reimburse police officers for reasonable and actual costs of meals, and to amend the budget to increase the expense “Training/ Police” by $2,500.00. The motion was seconded by Council Member Babin, and passed with a unanimous vote.
Under Remarks of Personal Privilege, Police Chief Emmett Worley asked about a budget amendment for uniforms, and Mayor Normand advised that supply money is available now, and several months from now budget amendments should be done to cover new officers’ uniforms, promotion pay, and the new clerk’s salary costs.
A motion was made by Council Member Babin to adjourn, seconded by Council Member Perrault. The motion was unopposed. The meeting adjourned at 7:25 p.m.
