JENNINGS, LA (KPLC) - A press conference was held on Friday morning in Jennings and Mayor Terry Duhon announced that police chief Johnny Lassiter will be taking a voluntary demotion.

At the press conference, Todd D'Albor was named the interim chief of police in Jennings. D'Albor will have to first take a test before he can officially become chief of police. That test will also be open to anyone else who would like to apply for the position.

D'Albor most recently worked with the St. Martinville Police Department, and before that worked with the Jeff Davis Parish Sheriff's Office.

It is expected that Lassiter will return to the position of lieutenant, but that decision will be made by the new chief of police.

A newspaper in Jeff Davis Parish reported earlier this week that police chief Johnny Lassiter would step down from his position as head of the department.

Lassiter had been chief for five years.
