GONZALES, LA (WAFB) -
Three men, each with
nearly 20 years of law enforcement experience, are in the race for police chief
A lot has happened in the
City of Gonzales since Chief Sherman Jackson took office four years ago. The
police force took to the streets and classrooms around the city, and recently
moved into a new state-of-the art facility to continue its efforts to serve and
protect. Jackson believes his record speaks for itself.
"Crime is down plus 17
percent. I think in this day in time it is a major, major accomplishment. It
reflects my leadership," Jackson said.
Meanwhile, former Gonzales
Police Sergeant Duane Carpenter said it is time for the police department to
take a detour. Carpenter believes the jobs he has held on the force have
prepared him to run the department and the streets at the same time.
"I'm going to be a working
police chief. I'm going to be in uniform every day, drive a marked police car,
add canines to the department to fight the war on drugs, put police officers
back in schools, teach the kids and be involved in the community. You'll see me
out here. You'll know where your police chief is at. I won't let the city of
Gonzales down," Carpenter said.
Glynn LeBlanc, who took a
break from law enforcement to go to work for his family's business, wants to
combine his management and law enforcement experience. The former investigator
and training instructor said he wants to work from the inside out beginning
with rewriting a 26-year-old department policy manual.
"It shows leadership. This
is a management job. You're leading 45 people and a $40.7 million budget and
you have to have experience in handling large budgets and mass personnel and
putting policy and procedures in place that everybody can follow and abide by,"
On November 6, Gonzales
voters will decide who will protect and serve them for the next four years.
