CENTRAL, LA (WAFB) -  Central will soon have an assistant police chief. 

 The City Council voted Tuesday night to approve about $55,000 for the new position after a lengthy debate. The position is only the second paid person in the department. The other 10 officers are all volunteers. 

State police and the East Baton Rouge Sheriff’s department handle the majority of the calls inside the city limit.
