Former BRPD Lt. appointed Killian police chief

Tim Henderson, 53, has officially been appointed as the new Killian Police Chief in Livingston Parish.

Henderson retired as a lieutenant in Jan. 2021 from the Baton Rouge Police Dept. after 24 years. Prior to BRPD, Henderson worked at the East Baton Rouge Sheriff’s Office and LSU PD for a total of 31 years of law enforcement experience.

“Even though I enjoy retirement, when this opportunity presented itself, I thought with my experience, I could be beneficial to this town and its residents,” said Henderson. 

The Killian Mayor recommended Henderson as his pick for police chief after the former chief left for another job. At the town’s meeting on April 26th, the aldermen unanimously approved the mayor’s appointment. 

“I feel excited. I feel blessed, extremely proud. I feel privileged to be given this opportunity,” said Henderson. “After speaking with the mayor and aldermen, I believe in the direction they’re trying to take the town.”

Henderson will be sworn in at the town’s next meeting in about two more weeks. The new top cop said he’s excited to start this new chapter in his law enforcement career. 

“To the people of Killian, I look forward to meeting y’all and finding out your needs. My door will always be open and my phone will always be on,” said Henderson.
