A Shreveport Police officer placed on leave by Chief of Police Alan Crump last month has been arrested following a criminal investigation.

Officer Darryl Council was placed on paid administrative leave by Chief Crump on May 15, 2018, after information indicating Council possibly violated a criminal statute was discovered during the course of an unrelated administrative inquiry. Chief Crump immediately ordered a criminal investigation into the matter at that time.

Based on information and evidence gathered during that investigation, detective supervisors procured an arrest warrant charging Council with one count of simple battery. Council surrendered himself to authorities at the Shreveport City Jail this afternoon where he was booked in on the outstanding arrest warrant. Bond in the matter has been set at $500.00

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.”
