Sources this morning have told Lincoln Parish News Online (LPNO) that the Jonesboro Police Department will soon be restaffed to provide 24 hour protection to the town’s citizens.
Fiscal administrator William Ryder has instructed Chief Wesley Horton to develop and submit a budget to accomplish that goal, the sources said.
It is unclear how long before the restaffing takes effect, but reportedly the administrator told the chief to have the budget submitted to him as quickly as possible.
Also, the sources said the town’s other departments have been told to submit budgets.
LPNO will continue to follow this breaking news story.
