Repairing the Image of the Lafayette Police Department

LCG administrators think that the image of the Lafayette Police Department needs to be repaired while Kenneth Boudreaux, the most recent appointee of the Lafayette Fire and Police Civil Service Board, feels that a complaint filed by CNLA is ‘tarnishing’ the image of officers. What do you think? After 450 days is it finally time for the Civil Service Board to look into the internal investigative and discipline practices of the Lafayette Police Department?
