|LaBorde, Russell enter sheriff's race|
Former West Monroe Police Chief Larry LaBorde confirmed Wednesday he will be a candidate for Ouachita Parish sheriff in the fall elections.
Besides LaBorde, Chief Deputy Jay Russell of the Ouachita Parish Sheriff's Office is expected to be a candidate for sheriff, too. Russell will formally announce his candidacy at a later date.
LaBorde, 62, worked at West Monroe Police Department for 25 years. He was chief for 23 of them. He was named chief of the West Monroe Police Department in 1979 when he was 30 years old. He retired as chief in 2003.
"I will be candidate for sheriff," said LaBorde. "Right now, we're organizing a campaign and preparing to run."
Like Russell, LaBorde said he would formally announce his candidacy at a later date.
LaBorde resides in the Indian Lakes area in western Ouachita Parish. He currently works as chief investigator for the 3rd Judicial District Attorney's Office. The 3rd Judicial District covers Lincoln and Union parishes.
When he left the West Monroe Police Department in 2003, LaBorde went to work as director of university police at LSU in Shreveport. He held that position until 2006 when he moved back to Ouachita Parish.
Russell, 51, has 27 years of experience in law enforcement circles, including 18 years with the Ouachita Parish Sheriff's Office.
A resident of West Monroe, Russell began his law enforcement career at Farmerville Police Department. He left Farmerville for the Ouachita Parish Sheriff's Office and worked there until 1996 when Chuck Cook became sheriff. From 1996-2000, Russell worked for LaBorde in West Monroe.
In 2000, Russell returned to the Ouachita Parish Sheriff's Office and later was named chief deputy under Sheriff Richard Fewell. Russell succeeded Joe Davis when Davis retired as chief deputy.
When Royce Toney took office as sheriff in July 2008, Russell retained the chief deputy position.
LaBorde's and Russell's candidacies were prompted by Toney's decision not to seek re-election this fall. Toney announced two weeks ago he would not seek a second term as sheriff.
