(WAFB) - Louisiana State Police Superintendent Col. Mike Edmonson has issued an updated statement in regards to the alleged trip to Las Vegas his troopers took last year.
The statement can be read below:
In response to Governor John Bel Edwards calling for an investigation into LSP's travel expenses, Col. Edmonson issued an initial statement earlier this week.
The trip in question was part of a conference where Col. Edmonson was being honored that troopers traveled to, where they reportedly took a 350-mile detour to a resort in Las Vegas. Col. Edmonson says he'll get those troopers to pay the taxpayers back for that and for any other times where the troopers may have lied on their time sheets during the trip. The colonel also says he's reassigned one trooper while others investigate the situation.
