Police alleges unfair treatment of officers

HOUMA, La. (AP) - A federal judge denied two Houma Police officers' request for protection from adverse job treatment while they sue their department.

Capt. Milton Wolfe Jr. and Sgt. Kyle Faulk filed suit last week, alleging mistreatment after disagreeing with legislation that continued to keep the police chief position out of civil service protection.

Wolfe was removed from as chief of detectives and Faulk from recruiting officer and police spokesman after voicing displeasure with House Bill 106, which was passed last month.

Wolfe and Faulk seek unspecified damages.

House Bill 106 extended the legislation passed in 2009 that allowed the Terrebonne Parish president to hire and fire the Houma Police chief at will, rather than requiring the hearing and due process under civil service rules.
