MAYOR CHARLES CAILLOUET ANNOUNCES
NOMINATION FOR CHIEF OF POLICE

Mayor Charles Caillouet is pleased to announce Mr. Howard Robertson as his nomination for Chief of Police for the City of Thibodaux. Mr. Robertson comes to Thibodaux with a highly accredited background in many aspects of law enforcement and personnel supervision. In his esteemed career Mr. Robertson rose from patrolman with the New Orleans Police Department to the rank of Major. During his service with N.O.P.D. he served as a commander of the patrol divisions (800 sworn officers), education and training, special operations, and inspections. After thirty-two years with N.O.P.D., Mr. Robertson retired in 1999.  Upon his retirement, he was hired by District Attorney Harry Connick to serve as Chief Investigator for the New Orleans District Attorneys office, where he served until present.

Robertson is a native of New Orleans, Louisiana and a graduate of Loyola University, the FBI National Academy, as well as several other accredited continuing education programs. He has written many published articles and has taught numerous courses on leadership and management, as well as many aspects of police work.

Mr. Robertson’s nomination as Chief of Police comes at the conclusion of a thorough search and selection process.  Mayor Caillouet created a review and selection group to assist him in the selection process.  The group was composed of a broad cross section of the city’s community.  The group reviewed 28 resumes and conducted interviews of several candidates before making their recommendations to the Mayor.  Additional interviews by Mayor Caillouet resulted in his choice of Mr. Robertson for Chief of Police.  Robertson will assume the position of Chief effective February 5, 2003 pending approval of the City Council at their meeting scheduled for February 4, 2003.

Mayor Caillouet and the City of Thibodaux would like to thank all those individuals who applied for the position of Chief of Police. The Mayor said, “It is a credit to the City of Thibodaux that so many qualified individuals expressed interest in serving this community, and I thank all those who applied as well as those who gave input into the selection process. I am certain that Mr. Robertson will be a very effective and innovative Chief of Police and will continue to improve our Police Department.”
