Police Department Changes Made During Town Meeting

Several changes at the Franklinton Police Department were made during the Tuesday (June 14, 2022) Mayor and Aldermen meeting. Beginning at 14:10 into video of the meeting, Mayor Route stated that he had met earlier with Chief Brown, Captain Tate, Captain Stogner, and Lt. Brumfield and that all were on board with the changes he is making. The Mayor then announced that, by Executive Appointment, Captain Michael Tate is promoted to the rank of Major, Jared Stubbs is promoted to the rank of Lieutenant, and Lieutenant Will Brumfield is promoted to the rank of Captain and will be the Department's Internal Affairs Officer with an office in the Office of Motor Vehicle building.

In the discussion that followed, 

  • the Mayor referenced complaints he has received regarding the Police Department 
  • it was pointed out that the Police Department currently has four vacancies and these changes will add to the need for additional hires
  • the need for the position of Major was questioned
  • pay increases for each of the promotions were announced

  • the employment of Christopher Mayeaux for Police Department was approved
