Interim Shreveport Deputy Police Chief Appointed
With Deputy Police Chief Duane Huddleston retiring next week, along with Chief Willie Shaw, an interim deputy chief has been appointed, and he's someone we all know well.
Mayor Ollie Tyler has named Corporal Bill Goodin, who's currently Chief Administrative Assistant, to the position. Goodin has been with the department since August 1993, and has served as CAA since 2012. He served as a patrolman and spent almost 12 years as a community liaison officer before becoming the department's public information officer.
"Chief Goodin displays dedication, professionalism and leadership skills at the highest level and will provide continuity during this transitional period as the department seeks to permanently fill the position of deputy chief of police and chief of police," said Chief Willie Shaw in a news release.
