LAFAYETTE, La. (KLFY)- The Judges of the City Court of Lafayette announced today that Donald W. Washington has been appointed as Temporary Marshal of the Court.

“The judges of the court have determined that Marshal Brian Pope is temporarily absent and that the continued operation of the Marshal’s office is necessary to the efficient operation of the court,” said Judge Francie Bouillion, presiding judge of the court.

The operation of Lafayette City Court and the duties performed by the Lafayette City Marshal’s office must continue uninterrupted.  

Those duties include the daily execution of the Court’s orders and arrest warrants, as well as the protection of those citizens utilizing our courthouse.

To guarantee the continued operation of the Marshal’s office in the absence of Marshal Pope, Louisiana law provides that a temporary Marshal be appointed by the judges. 

The temporary marshal will be called upon to handle the administrative duties of Marshal Pope in his absence. 

The temporary marshal, working with Chief Deputy Phil Conrad and other deputies, will supervise the day to day operation of the Marshal’s office. 

Donald W. Washington’s experience, along with the capable assistance of Marshal Pope’s deputies and staff will most assuredly accomplish the goal of the judges, which is to maintain the smooth operation of the Marshal’s office, including their efforts to assure the safety of those entering our building, the service of the Court’s orders as well as the execution of arrest warrants for those that choose to ignore their obligation to appear in court.
