La. police chief wants more troopers
By Jeff Adelson
New Orleans, La. — The superintendent of Louisiana State Police promised to push for more troopers on the north shore and better coordination between state and local agencies during a visit Tuesday to St. Tammany Parish.
Col. Michael Edmonson, appointed to head the State Police and the Department of Public Safety by Gov. Bobby Jindal earlier this year, praised the work of troopers as he explained a vision for a more decentralized agency that provides greater flexibility to local troop commanders while encouraging better cooperation with parish sheriff's offices and police departments.
