SPD Officer arrested; placed on leave

SHREVEPORT, La. - A Shreveport police officer has been placed on departmental leave following his arrest on an outstanding warrant procured by Shreveport Police detectives.

Derek Snyder, hired by the department in February of 2014, was booked into the Caddo Correctional Center Friday afternoon on an outstanding warrant charging him with a single count of violation of Louisiana Bureau of Criminal Identification and Information Regulations.

It is alleged Snyder, without proper authorization, acquired multiple criminal histories on citizens for personal reason and gain outside his official duties and capacities as a police officer.

The rules and regulations of the Shreveport Fire and Police Municipal Civil Service Board mandate that, “When an employee is charged with a felony he shall, and if a misdemeanor he may, be immediately relieved of duty and placed on "departmental leave" for up to one week at full pay and with continuing seniority.”
