LAPLACE, LA (WAFB) -
Former Baton Rouge Police Chief Jeff LeDuff, who lost three officers during his tenure, says today's event in LaPlace brings back grim reminders, and opened some old wounds.
"I'm wondering did I provide everything to those officers that I needed to. Did I offer the proper training? Were they equipped for this? What happened?" Said LeDuff.
Dealing with the department's grief is hard according to LeDuff. Law enforcement people deal with grief in different ways he says, but the most difficult task is telling the family.
"You have to work with those families and that's the part. That's the most difficult when your sitting there and you're face to face with a family member who has watched that child, or their significant other go through the process of becoming a police officer, and then someone is sitting there in front of them saying that person is gone. Your son, your daughter, your husband, your wife. My heart goes out to that department today," said LeDuff.
