§ 2481.3 Police chief; city of Houma; unclassified service
A. Notwithstanding any provision of law to the contrary, the position of chief of police for the city of Houma is in the unclassified service, and the right of selection, appointment, supervision, and discharge for such position is vested in the president of the parish of Terrebonne. The chief of police shall have not less than five years of full time law enforcement experience and shall have successfully completed a certified training program approved by the Council on Peace Officers Standards and Training. The appointment of the chief of police shall be subject to the approval of the parish governing authority. Any person appointed to the position of chief of police shall meet all qualifications and requirements as provided in the parish compensation plan in effect at the time of his appointment.
B. Any person who resigns from a position in the classified service to be appointed chief of police shall not forfeit his seniority accumulated to the date of his resignation, but he shall not accumulate seniority during the time he is not in the classified service. If any such person resigns from the position of chief of police or is terminated for any reason other than malfeasance in office, he shall be eligible to be reemployed to the same position in the classified service in which he was employed immediately preceding his resignation from the classified service. If the position has been filled or no longer exists, then his former employer shall employ him in a comparable position.
C. The provisions of this Section shall be null and void on July 1,

|The Municipal Fire and Police Civil Service Law was amended as a result of the 2012 Regular Legislative Session. As of this writing, the web sites of both the Legislature of the State of Louisiana and West Group (West Law) have not posted the civil service law in its final amended form. However, we have added the above section to reflect the changes in the law. The additions are temporarily underlined, and upon verification with the final publication of the law, will be incorporated into the existing language.|
