Sorrento Police Chief Going Back On Patrol
SORRENTO, La. (AP) — Sorrento Police Chief Earl Theriot Jr. and his assistant chief will be on patrol, but without the special type of insurance coverages required for police patrols.
Ascension Parish Sheriff Jeff Wiley and Sorrento Mayor Mike Lambert said Theriot told them he intends to start patrolling again on Monday 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., weekdays.
Wiley tells The Advocate Theriot reported that "he will be on duty and subject to call."
Lambert said Friday that he and the council remain concerned about the financial risk to the town when Theriot and Assistant Chief Ricky Smith patrol without professional liability insurance on themselves or the type of insurance needed for their vehicles.
