The town of Coushatta has not had a social media policy for employees. On Tuesday night the Town Council adopted one.
Mayor Johnny Cox said the policy covers use of the phone, social media outlets, and similar means of communication. “We did not have one,” said Cox, “The Police Jury does have a policy, so we patterned the city policy after theirs, tweaking it to fit our circumstances.”
Council members voted unanimously to approve the policy.
Also at that council meeting Police Chief Kevin Stafford reported that several new police officers have been hired. He says they are getting out and meeting residents. “They are getting to know the public,” said Stafford.
