Ferriday, LA is a small town in east-central Louisiana, and is evidently going through some budget disruptions. The police department has been locked by order o the State Auditor.
According to Ferriday police, they had “just received orders per the State auditors that until a budget is adopted by the Town that all town functions including Ferriday Police Department must lock it’s doors and discontinue all service calls
It sounds like all the services in Ferriday are disrupted. Louisiana law requires that all political subdivisions have a budget and live within it. This sounds like not so much a case of Defund The Police as a case of Defund The Whole Town.
The mayor and town council need to get busy and adopt a budget. Or not. Whatever.
Only in Louisiana.
