COUNSEL, I MEAN, DEPUTY CHIEF DANIELS.

THANK YOU.

YES, SIR.

UH, I APOLOGIZE.

UH, BUT YES, UH, TO FOLLOW UP, UH, ON THAT INFORMATION, THERE WERE ONLY A COUPLE ITEMS THAT NEEDED TO BE UPDATED FROM THE ORIGINAL REPORT.

UH, THE ORIGINAL REPORT WE GAVE THE 10 YEARS OF DOCUMENTED INCIDENTS.

THERE WAS ONE CLARIFICATION THAT DEFINITELY NEEDED TO BE MADE.

THERE WAS THE ASK OF HOW MANY OF THOSE WARRANTS WERE RESIDENTIAL VERSUS COMMERCIAL, UM, AND ACTUALLY, UH, RESIDENTIAL ACCOUNT FOR RIGHT ABOUT 99% OF THOSE WARRANTS VERSUS THE COMMERCIAL WARRANTS THAT ARE EXECUTED BY, UH, OUR SPECIALIZED DIVISION IN THAT AREA.

AND THE OTHER ASPECT, UH, WAS, UH, UP BRINGING IT BACK UP TO DATE, UP TO DATE, UH, WE'VE SERVED 44 WARRANT UP TO DATE THIS YEAR IN 2023, AND THEY HAVE ALL BEEN RESIDENTIAL.

YOU DON'T TAKE ANY QUESTIONS THAT MAY BE MELISSA AT A PUBLIC HEARING.

UH, IS THERE ANYONE WISHING TO SPEAK ON ITEMS ONE 17? IS THERE A REPRESENTATIVE HERE FROM THE SHERIFF'S OFFICE TO SPEAK TO ITEM ONE 19? IS THERE A REPRESENTATIVE? ALL RIGHT.

WE WILL HAVE ANY QUESTIONS AND THEN WE'LL COME TO THE COUNCIL.

DEPUTY CHIEF, IS THERE ANYONE HERE WISHING TO SPEAK ON ITEMS ONE 17 AND ONE 19 COUNT? REVEREND ANDERSON.

GOOD AFTERNOON, EVERYONE.

UH, IS THERE A WRITTEN REPORT SOMEWHERE THAT'S AVAILABLE? IS THERE A WRITTEN REPORT THAT YOU ALL CAN MAKE AVAILABLE? DEPUTY CHIEF? ABSOLUTELY.

UH, YES SIR.

I CAN MAKE THAT REPORT AVAILABLE TO YOU.

CAN YOU, AND GIVE, SEND IT TO ALL OF US AND SEND IT TO, UH, ASHLEY, AND WE'LL MAKE SURE WE PUT IT UP ON THE WEBSITE FOR PEOPLE TO PRINT OR DO WHATEVER THEY WANT TO DO.

ABSOLUTELY.

ALL RIGHT.

GO AHEAD REVEREND.

YEAH.

UH, I, I MADE THIS REQUEST IN WRITING AND I'VE MADE IT VERBALLY SEVERAL TIMES WHEN THESE ITEMS HAVE BEEN ON THE AGENDA THAT FOR THE PUBLIC, THE SAME WAY WE GET POWERPOINTS AND OTHER THINGS, THAT THE, THE DATA THAT WAS REQUESTED IS PRETTY CLEAR CUT.

AND IT WOULD BE VERY USEFUL FOR THAT TO BE PRESENTED SINCE THAT WAS THE ITEM THAT WAS ASKED BECAUSE AT LEAST FOR ME, UM, I DIDN'T FEEL LIKE WE, WE GOT A LOT OF DETAILS AT ALL.

SO I KNOW, AGAIN, I'VE MADE THIS REQUEST TO THE COUNCIL BOTH, UH, IN WRITING AS WELL AS WHEN I'VE MADE PUBLIC COMMENTS.

BUT IT IS VERY HARD TO DO AN ANALYSIS WHEN YOU SIMPLY DO NOT HAVE THE DATA AND IN GOD WE TRUST.

BUT ALL OTHERS NEED TO BRING DATA.

AMEN, .

AMEN.

[00:40:01]

COUNCIL, UH, ANYONE ELSE WISHING TO SPEAK ON ITEMS ONE 17 AND ONE 19? WHEN I GO TO COUNCIL COUNCILMAN EARTH? SO I DON'T KNOW IF ANDY OR SOMEBODY'S IN MIND YOU MIGHT BE ABLE TO ANSWER FOR ME, BUT, OKAY.

THERE YOU GO, GREG.

SO MY ONE QUESTION WAS, YES SIR.

THE RISK MANAGEMENT.

YES SIR.

I BELIEVE WE TALKED A LITTLE BIT ABOUT IT.

IT MIGHT HAVE BEEN A COUPLE, TWO WEEKS AGO, JUST HOW MANY CLAIMS ARE BEING PAID BECAUSE I WANTED TO UNDERSTAND THE PROCESS AND THEN WANTED TO UNDERSTAND HOW DOES SOMEBODY WHO'S HAD SUFFERED A TREMENDOUS LOSS, UM, CUZ YOU WERE AT GRANDMA'S HOUSE AND YOU BAR IRRITATED YOURSELF IN AND GRANDMA DIDN'T KNOW THE POLICE WERE LOOKING FOR YOU.

HOW DO WE GET THAT MONEY RECOVERED? BECAUSE MY UNDERSTANDING IS A LOT OF CLAIMS ARE BEING DENIED.

THEY ARE.

AND, AND, AND WHAT'S THE CRITERIA THAT YOU ALL USE TO DETERMINE WHO GETS PAID AND WHO DOESN'T? OKAY.

AND I, AND I THINK AT THE LAST MEETING, I HOPE I GET IT RIGHT, COUNCILMAN, I THINK ANDY QUOTED, UH, UH, MR. DOTSON QUOTED THE STATUTE THAT ABSOLVES US OF THAT LIABILITY.

I THINK HE EVEN MADE A STATEMENT, MA'AM.

WE NEED TO GET THAT CHANGED TO HELP THESE PEOPLE OUT.

THEY'RE NOT CATEGORICALLY DENIED.

UH, THEY ARE TYPICALLY, THOSE CLAIMS ARE INVESTIGATED AND COME BACK FROM OUR ADJUSTING COMPANY TO EITHER SAY, THIS IS OUR RECOMMENDATION, EITHER PAY OR DON'T PAY.

SO THEY'RE NOT JUST ABSOLUTELY DENIED RIGHT OFF THE TOP.

BUT I DON'T KNOW IF THAT HELPS YOUR ANSWERS YOUR QUESTION.

IT DOES, BUT I WOULD TELL YOU, I THINK YOU JUST CONTRADICTED IT BECAUSE YOU SAID THAT THE STATUTE IS WRITTEN WHERE IT SAYS THAT WE DON'T HAVE TO PAY FOR CERTAIN REASONS.

BUT THEN, THEN YOU'RE STILL SEND AN ADJUSTER OUT TO LOOK AT IT.

SO, UM, YEAH.

UM, I'M JUST TRYING TO FIGURE OUT WHY WOULD THE ADJUSTER GO OUT IF WE ARE NOT GOING TO ACCEPT ANY FAULT BASED ON THE LAW? BECAUSE WE, IF SOMEBODY FILES A CLAIM WITH US, WE STILL INVESTIGATE IT.

SO IF, IF WE GET A CLAIM, HE MAY THINK UPFRONT, GREG, I DON'T THINK WE HAVE ANY RESPONSIBILITY.

ANDY AND I ARE PROBABLY STILL GONNA TELL HIM YOU NEED TO GO OUT THERE.

AT LEAST MAKE SURE YOU GOT ALL THE FACTS CORRECT BEFORE WE SAY WE'RE ABSOLUTELY NOT GONNA PAY THIS CLAIM.

WE DON'T START OFF AT THE BEGINNING SAYING, WE'RE NOT GONNA PAY THIS CLAIM.

CUZ PEOPLE FILE CLAIMS ALL THE TIME, AND I'M THE NO GUY.

I MEAN, I, I SAY NO TO CLAIMS ALL THE TIME, BUT IT'S AFTER USUALLY AN INVESTIGATION AND THE ADJUSTER MAKING A RECOMMENDATION TO US.

I STILL, I, I TALKED TO ANDY A LITTLE BIT.

WE, UM, LOOKED AT, UH, THE, HOW, HOW WE CHANGED IT AT THE STATE LEVEL, BUT ALSO WANNA KNOW IF WE CAN DO SOMETHING THE LOCAL LEVEL AS WELL.

SO I, I'LL DEAL WITH YOU ON THAT.

I, I'M HAPPY TO SIT DOWN AND TALK TO YOU.

I I DON'T KNOW IF, IF I COMPLETELY ANSWERED YOUR QUESTION, BUT I'M GLAD TO MEET WITH YOU TO, TO A DEGREE, BUT THERE'S SOME ACTIONS I'D LIKE TO TAKE WITH YOU BEYOND THIS SUBJECT.

OKAY.

ALL RIGHT.

CO COUNCIL MEMBER BANKS, UM, MYRON, PLEASE, DEPUTY CHIEF.

SO, UH, REVEREND ALEXANDER, UH, MENTIONED ABOUT HAVING A REPORT AND DATA.

IS THAT SOMETHING CUZ I OFTEN GET THAT FROM DEPUTY CHIEF AND ALL, UM, NOT FOR, YOU KNOW, JUST FOR REPORTS.

SO DO YOU HAVE THAT INFORMATION WHERE YOU COULD EMAIL IT? YES, MA'AM, I DO.

OKAY.

DO YOU HAVE IT WITH YOU NOW? ANYTHING? I HAVE, UH, THE BASICS WHICH ARE THE, UH, BREAKDOWN FOR THE LAST 10 YEARS OF SPECIAL RESPONSE TEAM ACTIVITY.

OKAY.

AND I ALSO HAVE, UH, THE ATTACHED POLICY THAT GOVERNS ARREST AND WARRANT.

OKAY.

YOU HAVE MORE THAN ONE COPY? ACTUALLY, I, I DO HAVE A FEW COPIES YESTERDAY.

IS THAT SOMETHING YOU'D LIKE TO HAVE? UM, IT, IT DOESN'T COMPROMISE ANYONE, DOES IT? UH, NO MA'AM.

ACTUALLY THAT POLICY IS ON OUR WEBSITE.

I MEAN, AND THE DATA, UH, NO MA'AM.

THE DATA DOES NOT.

OKAY.

UH, REVEREND ALEXANDER, IS THAT WHAT YOU NEED? I MEAN, REVEREND ANDERSON, WHAT I JUST GAVE YOU, REVEREND ANDERSON, WHAT I, UH, DEPUTY CHIEF GAVE US ALL.

SO I DON'T KNOW IF THAT'S THE SAME THING.

I KNOW HE'S GONNA EMAIL IT TO US CORRECTLY.

OH, NO, HE GAVE IT US ALL THE FIRST TIME HE WAS SUPPOSED TO GET A REPORT.

I JUST GAVE THAT TO REVEREND ANDERSON JUST MINUTE.

OH, OKAY.

YOU GOT YOU.

GOOD.

I'M, I'M STILL.

OH, OKAY.

WELL, WE KNOW WE HAVE ACCESS AND HE'LL BE HERE FOR A MINUTE IF YOU NEED TO SPEAK WITH ABSOLUTELY.

ALL RIGHT, THANK YOU.

YES, MA'AM.

ANYONE ELSE WISHING TO SPEAK ON ITEMS ONE 17 AND ONE 19? LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, WE NOW WILL HAVE, IS THE, THE OFFICER HERE TO GIVE US THE REPORT ON ITEM ONE 16? I'M LOOKING AT, YOU WANNA SPEAK AT I AIN'T COUNCIL MEMBER MO, WE HAVE GOT QUESTIONS ON THE OTHER ONE BEFORE WE HIT THAT REPORT.

COUNCIL MEMBER MO, THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

UM, BASED ON WHAT WE'RE LOOKING AT HERE, EXECUTION OF ARREST, OUT OF THE EXECUTION OF ARREST WARRANTS.

FROM THE DATA THAT YOU GAVE US, HOW MANY OF THOSE RESULTED IN THE COMPLETION OF THE ARREST WARRANT? SO THE, THE INFORMATION THAT I PROVIDED TO YOU WAS THOSE HIGH RISK, UH, ARREST AND SEARCH WARRANTS THAT WERE PERFORMED BY

[00:45:01]

OUR SPECIAL RESPONSE TEAM.

OKAY.

DO YOU HAVE THAT WITH YOU? YES, SIR.

SO OUT OF THE INFORMATION THAT YOU GAVE US IN THAT REPORT, HOW MANY OF THOSE ARREST WARRANTS OR EXECUTION OF ARREST WARRANTS AND SEARCHES RESULTED IN AN ACTUAL ARREST? I DON'T HAVE THAT SPECIFIC INFORMATION FOR YOU, SIR.

OKAY.

I, I FEEL LIKE THAT'S KIND OF WHAT SOME OF THIS REPORT'S ASKING FOR.

AND I GUESS IN THAT INFORMATION, WHENEVER YOU GET THAT REPORT IS WHEN YOU EX, UH, EXECUTE THAT ARREST WARRANT OR SEARCH.

AND WHAT I'M, THE REASON I'M ASKING FOR HOW MANY AM ACTUALLY INDICATED A ACTUAL ARREST AT THE MOMENT THAT YOU EXECUTED IT WAS DO, DO YOU HAVE THE PROBABLE CAUSE TO GO IN AND EXECUTE THIS? AND WHEN THERE'S AN EXECUTION OF THIS, ESPECIALLY WITH A HIGH RISK OR WHATEVER, THERE'S PROBABILITY HIGH, HIGH PROBABILITY THAT THERE'S GOING TO BE DAMAGE TO A, UH, FACILITY, UH, RESIDENTIAL COMMERCIAL OR WHATEVER.

SO THAT'S WHY I'M TRYING TO GET THAT NUMBER IS WE GO IN, EXECUTE AN ARREST WARRANT, SEARCH ITEM OR WHATEVER IN A RESIDENCE OR A COMMERCIAL, HOW MANY OF THOSE ACTUALLY TURNED OVER AN ACTUAL ARREST OR A CAPTURE OF A SUSPECT VERSUS, AND, AND WE DAMAGE THE PLACE OR WHATEVER THAT GOT THE ARREST OF THE SUSPECT VERSUS WE GO IN AND DO ALL THE DAMAGE AND EVERYTHING, DID NOT GET AN ARREST OF THE SUSPECT OR WHATEVER.

UH, THE POINT OF CLARIFICATION, UH, THE USUALLY, UM, AND I GUESS THERE IS ASSUMPTION THAT THERE'S ALWAYS DAMAGE DONE.

THAT IS NOT ALWAYS THE CASE.

UH, IN SEARCH WARRANTS.

UH, THERE ARE TIMES WHERE WE WILL, UH, HAVE TO MAKE FORCED ENTRY, BUT THAT IS NOT ALWAYS ON EVERY CIRCUMSTANCE.

OKAY.

SO COULD I NARROW THAT REQUEST DOWN TO ANY OF 'EM THAT HAVE HAD FORCED ENTRY, EXECUTION OF AN ARREST WARRANT WITH A FORCED ENTRY, IMPLEMENTED AN ACTUAL ARREST OF A, UM, PERSON VERSUS NON-RES OF A PERSON? WHETHER IT BE THE PERSON WASN'T THERE THAT THEY THOUGHT WAS THERE OR, OR WHATEVER.

IS THAT INFORMATION THAT WE CAN GET IN THIS DATA? IF YOU GIVE ME UNTIL NEXT MEETING, I PROBABLY CAN'T GET YOU THAT INFORMATION.

OKAY.

I MEAN, I DON'T, I I GUESS RIGHT NOW I DON'T NEED IT.

PUT IT BACK ON THE AGENDA FOR ANOTHER DISCUSSION.

BUT I WOULD LIKE THAT INFORMATION ABOUT HOW MANY OF THESE FORCED ENTRY SEARCH AND, AND, AND EXECUTION OF, OF WARRANTS RESULTED IN DAMAGE OF THE HOUSE, THE, OF THE HOME THAT CREATED A CAPTURE OR A NON CAPTURE.

YES.

THANK YOU.

YOU'RE WELCOME.

COUNCIL MEMBER DOUG.

THANK YOU.

LET ME FIRST, UM, THANK B R P D FOR ENGAGING WITH US IN THIS DISCUSSION.

WE'VE BEEN TALKING ABOUT IT FOR QUITE A WHILE.

UM, TIP MY HAT OFF TO YOU GUYS, THE CHIEF AND EVERYBODY INVOLVED.

WE'RE GETTING US THE DATA, GETTING US THE INFORMATION, YOU KNOW, COMING UP HERE REPEATEDLY AND TRYING TO ADDRESS THE CONCERNS OF NOT ONLY US, BUT THE PEOPLE THAT WE REPRESENT.

SO I APPRECIATE YOU GUYS DOING THAT.

THANK YOU.

LET ME ALSO SAY, UM, I'M PERSONALLY OFFENDED.

I THINK WE AS EASTBOUND ROUGE PARISH SHOULD BE COLLECTIVELY OFFENDED THAT THE SHERIFF'S OFFICE AND CITY GORO HAS CHOSEN NOT TO ENGAGE IN THIS CONVERSATION.

UH, THIS CITY PARISH AND THIS METRO COUNCIL DOES NOT HAVE AUTHORITY OVER THE, UH, SHERIFF DEPARTMENT, BUT THE TAXPAYERS OF THIS PARISH DOES FUND THAT AGENCY.

AND THIS IS A COMMUNITY CONVERSATION THAT'S OF CONCERN TO THE COMMUNITY.

AND I THINK THEY SHOULD DO THE COMMUNITY, UM, A SOLID AND SHOW UP AND HAVE THIS DISCUSSION.

SO LET ME START WITH THAT.

UM, SECONDLY, MINE, WHAT I'M CONCERNED ABOUT IS NOT SO MUCH THE TOTAL NUMBER OF WARRANTS.

UM, AND, AND I'M MORE CONCERNED ABOUT HOW MANY ENDED IN, UH, PROPERTY DAMAGE AND WHAT ARE, WHAT DO WE CLASSIFY AS PROPERTY DAMAGE WHEN WE DURING THESE WARRANTS? UH, IN MOST CASES, ALL, MOST FORCED ENTRY OCCURRED WITH THE BREACH OF A DOOR.

OKAY? AND, AND THAT IS OUR STANDARD, UH, METHOD TO ENTER A HOME.

UH, IF IT IS A HIGH RISK WARRANT, UH, WHERE WE HAVE RECEIVED, UH, APPROVAL FROM A JUDGE TO EXECUTE.

DO YOU HAVE THAT NUMBER OF KNOWING WHAT, WHAT THE PERCENTAGE OF THOSE THAT ARE EXECUTED THAT CREATE PROPERTY DAMAGE? DO YOU HAVE THAT WITH YOU? I DO NOT HAVE THAT NUMBER WITH ME, SIR.

OKAY.

AND THIS MAY NOT, BUT THAT'S WHAT I, I NEED TO KNOW.

OKAY.

ALSO, UH, THE QUESTION, UH,

[00:50:01]

MAY NOT BE FOR YOU MAY BE FOR, FOR LEGAL, UH, BECAUSE I TALKED TO THE, THE CHIEF ABOUT THIS AND, AND TALKING TO RESIDENTS AND CITIZENS WHO WENT THROUGH THIS WHO WASN'T AWARE OF THE PROCESS.

COULD YOU OR SOMEONE TALK THROUGH THE PROCESS OF WHAT A RESIDENT OR PROPERTY OWNER SHOULD DO IN THE EVENT THEY FIND THEMSELVES IN A SITUATION WHERE THAT PROPERTY HAS BEEN DAMAGED? HOW DO THEY START THE PROCESS? WHO DO THEY CONTACT? HOW DO THEY GET IT GOING TO EVEN CONSIDER THEM BEING MADE WHOLE BY THE DAMAGES THAT WERE CAUSED? I THINK THAT I, I'M GONNA RECOMMEND HIM CUZ I LEARNED, UH, SOMEWHAT ABOUT THE EXTENT OF THE PROCESS.

ALL RIGHT.

FROM THE LAST THANK YOU.

TYPICALLY, WHAT'LL HAPPEN, COUNCILMAN, IS SOMETIMES THE, UH, OUR POLICE LEGAL ADVISOR, DELEY MORRIS, WILL CALL ME AND SAY, HEY, WE HAD THIS INCIDENT.

THIS PERSON WANTS TO FILE A CLAIM, GREG, HERE'S THE NUMBER.

I'LL PROBABLY CALL 'EM AND SAY, HEY, I'M GONNA CALL OUR ADJUSTER.

USUALLY PAT LASALLE, WE HAVE ANOTHER ONE THAT WORKS, ET CETERA.

BUT USUALLY I CALL PAT LASALLE AND SAY, HEY, THIS LADY SAYS THEY EXECUTED A WARRANT ON HER HOUSE.

THERE'S SOME DAMAGE.

I NEED YOU TO GO OUT THERE AND CHECK IT OUT.

THAT'S HOW IT STARTS.

SOMETIMES THEY WILL CALL OUR OFFICE DIRECTLY.

SOMETIMES THEY CALL SWI DIRECTLY.

SO THERE'S NO PARTICULAR ROUTE.

I DON'T CARE WHICH ROUTE.

IF THEY CALL ME, THAT'S FINE.

IF I GET IT FROM THE POLICE LEGAL ADVISOR, THAT'S FINE TOO.

THAT, BUT THAT'S, THE CLAIM WILL GET STARTED THAT WAY.

IT'LL EVENTUALLY EITHER GET TO ME OR MR. LASALLE, IT GETS TO ME.

I'M GONNA TELL HIM, HERE'S THE PERSON, HERE'S THEIR NUMBER, HERE'S WHO THEY CALLED.

CAN YOU PLEASE CONTACT THEM? AND HE OPENS A CLAIM.

AND WHO, WHO DO THE, WHO DOES THE CITIZEN CALL? YOU JUST SAID YOU RELY ON SOMEONE WITHIN LAW ENFORCEMENT.

NO.

CONTACTING YOU.

SO WHO, WHO, WHO DOES THE CITIZEN CALL? IF THEY FIND THEMSELVES IN THIS SITUATION? THEY HAVE NO CONTACT.

YOU CAN TELL 'EM TO CALL ME COUNCILMAN, THAT'S FINE.

OKAY.

BUT I'M GONNA TELL YOU, THE NEXT THING I'M GONNA DO IS CALL MR. LASALLE AND SAID, THIS CITIZEN CALLED, THIS IS WHAT THEY SAID HAPPENED.

I NEED YOU TO GET OUT THERE AND INVESTIGATE.

SO THEY SHOULD CONTACT THE PARISH ATTORNEY'S OFFICE.

THAT'S FINE WITH ME.

YEAH.

OKAY.

DO YOU HAVE ANY NUMBERS ON THE AMOUNT OF, UH, PROPERTIES THAT, THAT END UP IN DAMAGE? IT'S NOT A LOT.

UH, IN FACT, PAT, WE DON'T, WE DON'T TRACK IT, BUT WE'RE GONNA START TRACKING IT NOW.

SO I CAN GIVE YOU ACCURATE INFORMATION.

BUT IT'S TYPICALLY LESS THAN FIVE TO 10 A YEAR.

AND WE DON'T PAY A LOT OF 'EM.

WE HAVE PAID SOME, BUT WE DON'T PAY A LOT OF THEM.

AND THEY HAVEN'T BEEN REAL BIG, BIG NUMBERS.

LIKE SOME OF THE THINGS Y'ALL DESCRIBED, WE HAVEN'T, I HAVEN'T PAID THOSE KINDS NUMBERS.

I THINK ONE OF THE ISSUES IS MOST PEOPLE DON'T EVEN KNOW THEY HAVE THE OPPORTUNITY TO RECOUP THAT DAMAGES.

STEVEN, HAVE IT EVALUATED YOU MAY BE CORRECT.

AND THAT'S WHY I'M SAYING WHOEVER GET THE WORD OUT, HOWEVER, BUT THEY CAN CALL OUR OFFICE.

I'M GONNA GET 'EM TO THE RIGHT PERSON.

I PROMISE YOU THAT.

ALL RIGHT.

THANK AND IT'S GONNA GET INVESTIGATED.

THANK YOU.

ALL RIGHT.

ANY OTHER COUNCIL MEMBERS? WHEN ANY QUESTIONS, CONCERNS? COUNCILMAN MO? SO I, I GUESS IF, IF I MAY ASK, UM, UH, DIRECT THIS AT COUNCIL MEMBERS OR IF ANYBODY ELSE CAN ANSWER IT.

IF THE, IF THE RESULTING, UH, EXECUTION OF A WARRANT OR SEARCH OF A HOME DOES HAVE DAMAGE AND THEY, THEY CAPTURE THE PERSON THAT'S IN THERE, IS THE, SAY IT IS AT, AT AT GRANDMA'S HOUSE OR SOMEWHERE ELSE AND BUT THE PERSON'S ACTUALLY THERE AND THEY CAPTURE THAT PERSON AND MAKE THE ARREST, ARE THEY STILL LIABLE FOR A CLAIM IF THAT, IF YOU ACTUALLY MADE MY OPINION, I THINK IT'S DIFFERENT FROM WHAT THE, WHAT THE STATUTE WOULD PROBABLY SAY.

OKAY.

IF YOU ASK, IN MY OPINION, I DON'T THINK LAW ENFORCEMENT SHOULD HAVE A RIGHT TO GO IN YOUR HOUSE AND DAMAGE YOUR HOUSE.

CUZ THEY LOOKING FOR ME, THAT THAT'S JUST ME.

BUT I DON'T KNOW WHAT THE STATUTE SAYS.

RIGHT? SO FOR INSTANCE, IF I CALL TONIGHT AND SAY, CLE ROBBED THE BANK AND HE HAD AARON MO HOUSE AND THE POLICE COME IN AND TELL YOUR HOUSE UP.

IS THAT RIGHT? WELL, I, I GUESS, AND AGAIN, WE'RE HAVING DISCUSSION HERE.

I GUESS THE THING WOULD BE IS WHAT KIND OF THREAT IS THAT PERSON THAT HAPPENS TO BE IN MY HOUSE TO THE COMMUNITY THAT THEY HAVE TO GET HIM THEN AND THERE? BETTER QUESTION.

YOU KNOW, I I I RESPECT THAT, THAT THEY, I I MEAN, I DIDN'T KNOW IT.

I DIDN'T KNOW WHERE YOU CAME FROM BEFORE VISITING MY HOUSE.

NOW ALL OF A SUDDEN MY HOUSE IS IN SHAMBLES, BUT I'M LIKE, THANK GOD HE'S OUTTA MY HOME .

SO I, YOU KNOW, I GUESS THAT'S THE WHERE'S THAT BALANCE IS THAT WE HAVE TO, IS WE AS A CITY PARISH RESPONSIBLE FOR THAT CAPTURE OF THE PERSON.

IT'S, IT'S HORRIBLE THAT IT HAPPENED, BUT YET THIS PERSON'S OFF THE STREET.

NOW.

I I THINK YOU MADE A GREAT POINT.

IT IT DEPENDS ON THE, THE LEVEL OF THE THREAT, WHICH IS SOMETHING I'M GONNA DISCUSS ON THE NEXT ITEM.

OKAY.

THANK Y'ALL.

COUNCIL MEMBER, UH, I JUST HAVE ONE SUGGESTION AND WE HAVE A DIALOGUE UP HERE SOMETIMES SO WE DON'T BURN OUR TIME, WE USE IT.

BUT IN MY COMMUNITY CENTER, I BROUGHT UP THREE INCIDENCES WHERE TWO WERE SENIOR CITIZENS AT ARE PART OF COA AT CHARLES R. KELLY, WHERE NOW THE HOMES ON A CONDEMNATION LIST BECAUSE THEY COULDN'T AFFORD TO FIX THEM AND HOMEOWNERS WOULDN'T PAY THE CLAIM, RIGHT? AND THESE WERE BOTH RESIDENCES WHERE THE PERSON DIDN'T LIVE THERE, BUT THESE WERE FORMALLY

[00:55:01]

KNOWN ADDRESSES FOR THAT INDIVIDUAL.

SO AT ONE POINT IN TIME IT WAS ON A LICENSE.

SO THAT GAVE THE POLICE THE OPPORTUNITY TO GO ON IN, TELL GRANDMA TEAR GRANDMA'S HOUSE UP AND NOT FIX IT.

SO I DISAGREE WITH IT, BUT ONE OF THE POLICE OFFICERS TOLD, UM, ONE OF THESE LADIES, WE DON'T FIX THIS STUFF, YOU GOTTA FIX IT YOURSELF.

SO HE, HE IMMEDIATELY TOLD HER NOT TO FILE A CLAIM WHEN SHE WAS ASKING, HOW DO I GET THIS REPAIR? AND HE SAID, WE DON'T DO THAT.

SO ANYTIME Y'ALL HAVE FORCED ENTRY, I'M GONNA URGE THAT YOU CREATE A POLICY THAT THEY PASS OUT A CARD, THAT IF THEY WANT TO REACH OUT AND FILE A CLAIM THAT THIS CARD IS GIVEN OUT TO EACH HOMEOWNER TO AT LEAST START THE PROCESS AND GIVE THEMSELVES AN OPPORTUNITY TO BECOME WHOLE AGAIN.

I THINK THAT'S THE LEAST WE CAN DO WHILE WE WORK ON OTHER PIECES OF IT.

THAT'S JUST A COURTESY TO THE COMMUNITY.

UH, DULY NOTED COUNCILMAN AND I'M, I WOULD NOT THINK OR WOULD NOT WANT TO THINK THAT ONE OF OUR OFFICERS WOULD'VE TOLD SOMEONE THAT, UH, OUR RECOMMENDATIONS IS ALWAYS TO FILE YOUR, YOUR COMPLAINT THROUGH INTERNAL AFFAIRS.

OUR INTERNAL AFFAIRS DIVISION IS NORMALLY THE, THE BODY, UH, THAT WORKS WITH OUR LEGAL DIVISION TO HELP GET, UH, EVERYONE IN CONTACT WITH RISK MANAGEMENT.

AND IT'S DONE REGULARLY.

AND I DON'T THINK EVERY POLICE OFFICER, BAD POLICE OFFICER, I MEAN, IT'S ONE GUY I MIGHT HAVE SAID BASED ON THE LAST FOUR HOURS WE BUSTED INTO, THEY DIDN'T PAY 'EM, YOURS NOT GETTING, GETTING PAID EITHER, RIGHT? SO, BUT I THINK THE CARD COVERS THAT AND IT JUST SAYS, HEY, WE MAY HAVE CARDS DAMAGED TO YOUR HOME, LEGALLY OR ILLEGALLY, WHATEVER YOU WANNA PUT ON THERE, HERE'S A NUMBER YOU CAN DIAL WHERE YOU CAN, UH, START A, START A CLAIMS PROCESS.

I THINK THAT'S A, A EASY WAY TO GET AROUND THESE CONVERSATIONS.

YES, SIR.

THANK YOU.

COUNCIL MEMBER BROCK, SIR? YES, MA'AM.

IF THERE IS A, AN ACTIVE WARRANT, UM, DOESN'T THE WARRANT HAVE TO BE ISSUED TO A FIRST PARTY ADDRESS OR THERE MUST BE A REASONABLE BELIEF THAT THAT PERSON IS IN THAT PARTICULAR HOME OR ADDRESS OR LOCATION? YES, MA'AM.

OKAY.

AND IT'S ALSO, UM, REASONABLE TO SAY THAT THAT WARRANT OR THAT FOR YOU GUYS TO GO OR GIRLS GO TO EXERCISE THE WARRANTS, IT HAS TO BE SIGNED BY A JUDGE AND THAT ADDRESS IS CONTAINED ON THE WARRANT AT THAT TIME? YES, MA'AM.

THAT'S THE ONLY WAY WE CAN, OKAY.

THANK YOU SO MUCH.

WE WILL NOW HEAR THE REPORT FOR ITEMS ONE 16 AND ONE 18.

GOOD AFTERNOON, COUNSEL.

I THINK I, I DROPPED OFF THE REPORT LAST COUNSEL, SO, UM, SHORT JUST READING IT, UM, I, I'M HAPPY TO ANSWER ANY QUESTIONS IF THERE'S ANYTHING SPECIFIC TO THE STATISTICS THAT WE PROVIDED OR ANY OF THE INFORMATION TO REVEREND ANDERSON'S POINT.

I DON'T THINK SHE OR THE PUBLIC HAS THE REPORT.

SO IF YOU CAN GIVE A BRIEF OVERVIEW OF THE REPORT FOR THE PUBLIC STATE.

THANK YOU.

YES, SIR.

UM, SO FROM 2016 TO 2022, UH, THE BATON ROUGE POLICE DEPARTMENT ENGAGED IN APPROXIMATELY 926 PURSUITS.

THE NUMBER OF CRASHES THAT OCCURRED DURING THE PURSUIT OF THAT TOTAL SUM IS 101.

THE NUMBER OF THIRD PARTY INJURIES AS A RESULT OF THOSE PURSUITS ARE 46, UH, NUMBER OF THIRD PARTY PROPERTY DAMAGE.

AND I KIND OF CLARIFIED PROPERTY DAMAGE AS BEING ANYTHING FROM A VEHICLE HIT IN THE HOUSE, FENCE PROPERTY, TURF LAWN, WHATEVER IT WAS THAT, THAT BELONGED TO A THIRD PARTY AND OR CITY, PARISH OR STATE IS 122 INCIDENTS.

UM, NUMBER OF CRASHES CAUSED BY THE SUSPECT IS A HUNDRED NUMBER OF CRASHES CAUSED BY B R P D WAS ONE.

UH, AND I KIND OF BREAK DOWN, UH, THE NUMBER OF INJURIES, THIRD PARTY INJURIES, STARTING FROM, UH, 2016 THROUGH 2022, THERE WERE 43 THIRD PARTY PASSENGER INJURIES AND OF, OF THE TOTAL OF 46 3 WAS A LOSS OF LIFE BREAKDOWN OF, OF DAMAGE TO THIRD PARTY PROPERTY, UM, 74 VEHICLES DURING THAT TIMEFRAME.

AND DURING THAT NUMBER OF PURSUITS, 41, UH, THIRD PARTY PROPERTIES, SEVEN OF THOSE BELONG TO, UH, SEVEN OF THE TOTAL BELONG TO CITY ESTATE PROPERTY AND ONE B R P D VEHICLE AND 100 SUSPECT VEHICLES.

THAT'S COMMON TO THE GIST OF IT.

THAT IS THAT THE END OF THE REPORT? ALL RIGHT, WHAT WE'RE GONNA DO IS TAKE SOME, ANY QUESTIONS AND FROM THE AUDIENCE, UH, IF ANYONE HAS ANY QUESTIONS, COMMENTS, OR
