Carl Wayne Richard announces candidacy for City Marshal
Richard has served as a deputy city marshal for Bossier City and Shreveport since 1992.
With nearly two decades of law enforcement experience and his day-to-day working knowledge of the City Marshal’s office, Richard feels he is the only qualified candidate for the job.
“I have spent my entire career as a deputy city marshal,” said Richard. “No other candidate in this race has that experience. I love the Marshal’s office, I respect the important service it provides to the court and the citizens of Bossier City, and I will work night and day to make it the best.”
Richard promises to do “more with less” and to continue the highest level of professionalism the community expects from the City Marshal’s office. Under his leadership, Richard pledges that the Marshal’s budget will be reduced and its commitment to the community increased.
“I pledge to execute the orders of the court in a timely fashion, with respect for the court and for the citizens it serves,” added Richard. “I plan to increase the community involvement of the City Marshal’s office by maintaining a positive presence in the schools and businesses while remaining fiscally responsible and reducing the Marshal’s budget. I will provide more continuing education and in-service training opportunities within the City Marshal’s office to ensure that our deputies meet the highest standard for you, the citizens of Bossier City.”
The Bossier City Marshal election will be held Saturday, April 2.
