The Port Allen city council has unanimously approved an ordinance whereby newly hired police officer trainees must enter into a two-year contract with the city.

If the police officer trainee chooses to break that contract, the ordinance states that they must, “reimburse the City of Port Allen for the total costs incurred and expended for his/her training, including the costs of personal protective equipment and uniforms.”
