The Duson Police Chief has released a statement following last night's announcement that he has been put on leave.
In part, Chief Frank Andrew says, "It has come to a point were my position has become overbearingly stressful, and isn't affecting my health, and my family life. I am taking short time away from Duson Police Department in attempt to mend the problem areas affecting my life and career."
The Chief asks for privacy during this time.
Last night, the town's attorney told KATC a special meeting was called by the mayor concerning Chief Andrew. That meeting went into executive session, so the details of why Andrew is on leave aren't public. There will be a meeting Monday to determine who will lead the department in Andrew's absence.
