SORRENTO - Sorrento voters could be faced with an interesting decision Nov. 4 - elect a new police chief or do away with the position altogether, allowing the town to hire another agency to do the job.

State Sen. Jody Amedee said he plans to introduce legislation this year at the request of town officials to allow Sorrento voters to abolish their elected chief of police and Police Department in the current term of ousted former Chief Earl Theriot Jr.

The Advocate reports Amedee's proposed legislation would allow Sorrento voters the chance to do away with the chief's position and Police Department without delay on Nov. 4.
