Higher Education Budget Crisis, Police Body Cameras

Higher Education Budget Crisis

Thousands of layoffs, summer school closures and shuttering of five Ag Centers are just some of the consequences if Governor John Bel Edwards and the legislature can’t agree on revenue-raising measures during a three-week Special Session beginning February 14. We discuss the current state of affairs with Commissioner of Higher Education Dr. Joseph Rallo; Rachel Kincade, the Vice President for External Affairs for the University of Louisiana System; Dr. M. Christopher Brown II, the Southern University System Vice President and Provost; and Jason Droddy, the Executive Director of Policy and External Affairs for the LSU System. SHARE

Police Body Cameras

What happens when police and the people they arrest have different versions of their encounters? Major cities in Louisiana are looking at equipping their police officers with body cameras and LPB takes an in-depth look. How do they work? How much does it cost and what privacy issues do they raise? This month’s topic of Louisiana Public Square is called Police POV: Body Cameras in Louisiana. SHARE
