SU Police chief stepping down
BATON ROUGE - Ronald Stevens stepped down from his position as Southern University's Police Chief Friday, according to a spokesperson.
Ed Pratt said Stevens' departure had been planned for some time.
Stevens took over the position in 2011. He'd previously worked at the Baton Rouge Police Department and Louisiana Attorney General's Office.
Pratt said they expect to name an interim chief while searching for a permanent replacement, but did not give a time frame for that decision.
