Can a Shreveport Police Chief Really Be Fired? [VIDEO]
Attorney Ron Miciotto talks with 101.7 / 710 KEEL's Robert J Wright and Erin McCarty about the steps a Shreveport mayor would have to take to legally remove and replace a police chief.
Miciotto, who has represented a number of clients before the civil service board, tells KEEL listeners that if a mayor wanted to replace the chief, it would have to go before that board. "The mayor would have to move to ask the civil service board for a hearing to remove the chief for good cause. That would entail presenting evidence that the chief (had acted improperly)."
Miciotto then explains the process - if the board ruled against the sitting chief - the legal appeals he would have available.
