Crimestoppers With Chief Murphy Paul 5-14-20


Baton Rouge Police Chief Murphy Paul joined the show for our Crimestoppers segment to talk about the beginning of phase 1 of re-opening and what it means for his department.  Chief Paul says that there will be more traffic on the road now that more people will head back to work, which gives his officers more to watch out for.  He also talks about businesses that will be allowed to open at 25% capacity and how important communication between BRPD and those businesses are, but he explains that most businesses have followed the rules so far.  Then, Chief Paul discusses the adminstrative positions at BRPD that will return to work and he breaks down the decrease in 911 calls that they have received during the stay-at-home order.  Though there’s been a decrease in calls, domestic violence incidents have seen a spike, Chief Paul explains why.  Finally, the Chief previews the memorial ceremony that will take place this weekend, which honors law enforcement officers such as Lt. Glenn Hutto who have lost their lives in the line of duty.
