Ferriday Police Chief Placed on Administrative Leave
from The Concordia Sentinel
December 8, 2016 -

(Concordia Sentinel) — Ferriday Police Chief Arthur Lewis has been placed on administrative leave for an unspecified time by Ferriday Mayor Sherrie Jacobs.

Jacobs said this morning that she could not specify the reason for the action at this time.

“Other officers exhibiting unacceptable actions were dealt with accordingly,” Jacobs said. “Right now this is an unfortunate personnel matter for the town of Ferriday.

“This matter is being addressed internally and we hope to have this resolved as quickly as possible. Our goal is to provide the town of Ferriday with the highest level of law enforcement. We will have more information for the public after this situation is resolved.”

Lewis was named Ferriday Police Chief in July after Jacobs defeated incumbent Gene Allen for the mayor's position.

Lewis served as Police Chief in Vidalia before losing to Joey Merrill in the March election.
