The Jeanerette Law Enforcement building has a new name.

Monday night, the city council voted to rename the facility for officer Juandre Gilliam. The center will be known as the Juandre Gilliam Law Enforcement Center.

Gilliam died during a high-speed chase in April 2015. His relatives say Gilliam loved his work and this renaming honors his legacy.
