Council postpones discussion scheduled for Tuesday; no reason given
The New Orleans City Council's Budget Committee postponed discussion Tuesday on ordinances aimed at reforming the police department's off-duty paid detail system.
No reason was given for the postponement. Council Vice-President Jackie Clarkson says the issues surrounding police secondary employment will be discussed at a special Budget Committee meeting set for Wednesday, April 17, at 10am.
Members of police organizations were at Tuesday's meeting ready to voice their concerns about the new paid detail policy, which they oppose.
