Shreveport Police Chief Ben Raymond talks with 101.7 / 710 KEEL's Robert J Wright and Erin McCarty about his appointment, the process and his plans for the department.

In Part 1 of his two part interview the Chief gives his thoughts on what many say is not only a racially divided city, but police department and his response to those who objected to his appointment at Tuesday's City Council meeting.

Raymond also talks about his reaction to not being one of the three finalists given to Mayor Perkins by the eight person selection committee, his working relationship with the Mayor during his tenure as interim chief and his appreciation for Mayor Perkins defending his appointment at the Tuesday council session.
