Mayor's head of security detail transferred

Baton Rouge Police spokesman, Sgt. L’Jean McKneely, confirmed Friday the department has launched an internal affairs investigation into Lt. Murial Hall, a 28-year veteran of BRPD.

Hall served as the head of security for Broome as well as former EBR Mayor-President Kip Holden.

Sgt. McKneely says Lt. Hall is under investigation for possible inaccuracies with his time sheets while working on the mayor’s security detail.

He added Lt. Hall was transferred out of the mayor’s security detail into community policing on September 12.

Lt. Murial Hall has been transferred while BRPD looks into an anonymous complaint. Throughout my interactions with Lt. Hall, I have consistently seen him demonstrate professionalism when carrying out his duties as head of my security detail. It is my hope that the matter will be resolved as quickly as possible.
