Former Brusly Police Chief Jamie Whaley was arrested on Wednesday, June 11, and charged with theft, malfeasance in office and two counts of forgery, stemming from an investigation by the Louisiana Inspector General and FBI.

The investigation was reported on June 5 by the West Side Journal after onlookers witnessed officials from the Inspector General’s office removing boxes from Whaley’s Brusly home.

Brusly SRO fired regarding certifications

Written by Aaron Williams on . Posted in Local

After lengthy discussion, the Brusly Town Council voted Monday night to terminate the employment of well-known Brusly policeman and school resource officer, Gil Banta.

In a 4-1 vote, with only councilman Shane Andre voting against the recommendation, the council agreed to fire Banta – after explaining that it was not personal – based on his lack of basic and firearms Peace Officer Standards and Training Council (POST) certifications.

Interim Police Chief Richie Johnson said that Banta’s lack of POST certifications creates an issue, not only with the POST Council, but also with the town’s insurance carrier.
