Sorrento Gets Insurance Quote To Cover Police
SORRENTO, La. (AP) — The Sorrento Police Department is still without liability insurance but the town council has one insurance proposal to consider and a second proposal expected within the week.
On Tuesday, The Advocate reports that council members unanimously postponed action on a proposed $34,937 annual insurance policy from Indian Harbor Insurance Co.
Harold Williams, a broker with 1st Team Consulting Group, of Baton Rouge, told the town council that the policy covers the police department's two officers, Chief Earl Theriot Jr. and Assistant Police Chief Ricky Smith, and any officers to be added later to the force.
Without liability insurance since Nov. 19, Theriot has been forced to let go all of the department's officers except for himself and Smith as they search for insurance providers.
