New Baton Rouge Police Chief Named (VIDEO)

The months of waiting to learn who will be the next permanent leader of the Baton Rouge Police Department came to an end today.

Mayor-President Sharon Weston Broome announced in the Metro Council chambers that Murphy Paul is her choice for BRPD chief after one-on-one interviews with the five finalists for the post.

The Advocate notes that Paul was the only finalist who had not served with the department. He is a longtime member of State Police, having served as a trooper since 1994.
