Bossier Parish Police Jury attorney Patrick Jackson says the facts will shock the public.
EMS Director Duxie Scott was placed on paid leave by Parish Administrator Bill Altimus, after meeting with Scott on Tuesday and asking him to resign, an offer which Scott refused.
Today all five members of the board resigned, three after being asked.
The first two had called the police jury’s attention to problems with the system and resigned out of frustration that nothing had been done.
When the Police Jury did look into it, they found building materials stolen, huge raises given to employees without the approval of the board and erratic hiring practices, including the hiring of a convicted felon.
Homeland Security Director Sammy Halphen will take over operation of the system as interim director and will work with other authorities investigating the charges.
It will be interesting to find out who knew what and when.
