Louisiana Gets Its First Ever Black Female Police Captain In Treone Larvadain

She has been appointed by the Governor.

Louisiana Governor John Bel Edwards has announced the appointment of Treone Larvadin as the chief of Protective Services for the Louisiana State Police. She was promoted to this post. And as a result, she has made history by being the first Black female officer to be appointed as the chief of a major police unit in the history of Louisiana State Police.

As reported by Black Enterprise, Governor John Bel Edwards said in his announcement: "I am extremely proud of both Captain Larvadain and Captain Chutz and congratulate them on their accomplishments. He added: "They have both provided excellent service to the people of our state and exemplify the best of the Louisiana State Police. My family and I are especially grateful for the professional work Captain Chutz has provided to us over the last four years and have the utmost confidence in Captain Larvadain, who has worked alongside him and has now taken over the reins. The longevity of Captain Chutz’s career and the promotion of Captain Larvadain are a direct reflection of their dedication and commitment to the force and our great state." 

It was an extremely proud moment for Tiah Larvadin, Treone's daughter, who had also graduated to become a part of the police force along with her mother. She spoke with WBRZ in an interview where she said: "It’s very much an honor to be in the same uniform as her." She added: "Seeing the impact that they had on people… How they would help people, how they would respond to people, how people would respond to her… I just knew I wanted to have that affect on people the same way."
