In a legal notice sent to News15, the purpose of the meeting is to appoint Vance J. Olivier as interim police chief.

The City of Broussard had previously formed a committee to assist in the search for an interim police chief. The interim chief will serve until the next regular election in the fall of 2022.

The nine-member committee was comprised of three council members, the mayor, and five community members who have law enforcement experience. The members of the advisory search committee are listed below:

Mayor Ray Bourque

City Councilman Kenny Higginbotham

City Councilman Jesse Regan

City Councilman Jeff Delahoussaye

Lafayette Parish Sheriff Mark Garber – Broussard resident

St. Martin Parish Sheriff Dept. Lieutenant Ross Stevens

Retired US Marshal Ed Comeaux – Broussard resident, currently serving on the Broussard Civil Service Board

Retired City Marshal Phil Conrad – Broussard resident

Retired Louisiana State Police Sergeant John Trahan

“With more than 30 years in law enforcement, Vance’s qualifications are exemplary,” says Broussard Mayor Ray Bourque. “He has my complete support, and I look forward to working with him, focusing on the future and safety of our great city.”

“I want to thank everyone involved in the selection process, which ran seamlessly and professionally,” says Mayor Bourque. “I am grateful to the City and Police staff, our City Council, and those who volunteered their time for the selection committee.”
