LSUS Instructor Withdraws from Shreveport Police Chief Race

Rich Arnold, instructor of Criminal Justice at LSUS and retired sergeant with the Shreveport Police Department, has withdrawn his application for the Chief position with the Shreveport Police Department in support of Colonel Henry Whitehorn, an LSUS alumnus. Arnold says his resume has many similarities, but believes Col. Whitehorn will be far more capable in addressing the citizens’ concerns which will contribute to Shreveport Mayor Cedric Glover’s goal to make Shreveport the “next great city of the South.” 

“Shreveport has attracted the most highly qualified person for the vacant Chief’s position in the Shreveport Police Department,” said Arnold. “Colonel Henry Whitehorn, an LSUS Criminal Justice Alumnus, could have chosen to serve with much larger cites however Shreveport is his home. Henry’s 32 years in law enforcement, 20 of which in management, master’s from Grambling, post graduate courses from the University of Virginia, FBI National Academy, and a vast array of specialized training, combined with his sincere and genuine personality, make him unequivocally the best possible person to take on this challenge.”
