CENTRAL- According to a post on social media, Roger Corcoran has announced he will be a candidate for the position of Central's Chief of Police.

According to the personal post, he has a law enforcement career that spans more than 34 years where he worked with the East Baton Rouge Sheriff's Office.

"For almost two decades I have served as the head of security of Central High School athletic events and coached with the Central Athletic Youth League," he said. "Our community is far-and-above any other, and we need law enforcement leadership with the experience to keep us safe."

Over the next month, Corcoran says he will be assembling a campaign team and will announce a kick-off event closer to the summer.

Current Central Police Chief, James Salsbury announced earlier this year he would run for re-election. Salsbury's term is scheduled to end December 31, 2018.

Qualifications for the November 6th elections start July 18th.
