HOMER, LA (KSLA) -
KSLA News 12 has learned that the FBI has launched an investigation within the Homer Police Department.
FBI Louisiana Division spokesperson Mary Beth Romig says the investigation was launched Friday.
While Romig declined to reveal any details, including whether any warrants were served at the department, she did say that there has been "full cooperation" from the Claiborne Parish Sheriff's Office and Homer police.
"We are working very hard to minimize the impact on the daily operation of the Homer Police Department and their duty to protect the safety of the citizens of the community," Romig says.
Louisiana State Police are assisting the Federal Bureau of Investigations.
Romig also declined to comment on whether the FBI investigation is connected in any way to the recent vote to disband the Homer Police Department and demote Police Chief Russell Mills to town marshal.
Homer's five-member council moved February 11 to get rid of its police force effective March 1 (today). Homer's police department had 8 officers, one chief and one secretary.
Mills filed suit, and won a temporary restraining order preventing the disbanding of the department at least until a hearing can be held on March 4.
