BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) -
Both Mayor Kip Holden and former Police Chief Dewayne White had a few things
to say after what was a contentious and, at times, heated hearing to determine
the future employment of White with the Baton Rouge Police Department.
The Metro Council Chambers, where the hearing was held, was packed, and

deserve a lot better and I am very, very much in favor of the recommendation of
my chief administrative officer, William Daniel," said Holden.

Robert Joseph. "He has helped me to trust those who serve and protect
