Eunice Police reserve officers serve the city, but also save the city some big bucks, Eunice Police Chief Randy Fontenot said.
The reserve officers are paid once a year in November and this year the 24 officers received a total of about $15,000, he said.
The officers are paid $20 for each assignment, which can last an hour or more. This year the officers logged about 3,300 hours.
“I estimate our savings to the police department at about $50,000 a year,” Fontenot said.
A prescription drug drop-box is in place by the dispatch office at the Eunice Police Department.
The box, which is intended for outdated or no longer needed prescription drugs, is available seven days a week and 24 hours a day.
The box is placed in the department, 300 S. 2nd St., Eunice, by STL PROUD Coalition — St. Landry Preventing Rx Drug Oversue and Underage Drinking.
