YOUR TURN: LSP Overtime

BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) -

This week’s Your Turn segment goes to Leann Evans. Evans is one of hundreds of people who commented on our Facebook page about Lee Zurik’s investigation into Louisiana State Police overtime. Zurik’s investigation uncovered a trooper who racked up $240,000 in pay, but much of it was for hours that he did not work. Evans says this not something all Louisiana state troopers are doing. In her words:

I can assure you they do not all do it. Its people like this trooper who give law enforcement a bad name. My husband has been a trooper for 17 years. He works zero overtime because spending time with his family is more important. I know many other troopers who do work available overtime but are honest. You can’t judge a whole group by one bad egg.

That’s Leann Evans’ turn. Now it’s your turn. To comment on this segment or anything else, visit us on Facebook or send an email to yourturn@wafb.com.
