Mayor Tommy Chandler announced that Sgt. Christopher Estess has been selected as the new chief of the department.

“Today is a great day in the City of Bossier City,” said Mayor Chandler.

The mayor described Sgt. Estess as a Christian, father, husband, a friend, and someone who cares very much for Bossier City.

Back on April 8, the Bossier City Municipal Fire & Police Civil Service Board approved the exam scores for the five candidates: Sgt. Jeremy Kennedy, Sgt. Michael Jones, Sgt. Charles Bridges, Sgt. Daniel Haugen, and Sgt. Christopher Estess. Kennedy scored the highest (89), while Estess scored the lowest (84).

Estess joined the police department back in 1998. He worked 10 years with SWAT, and also has experience in patrol, street crimes, K-9, and internal affairs.

Chandler said Estess’ confirmation will be at the Bossier City City Council meeting on Tuesday, May 3.

The previous chief, Shane McWilliams, announced his retirement from the department back in early January.
