High Ranking Officer Sues Louisiana State Police


A high ranking officer with Louisiana State Police has filed a lawsuit in Baton Rouge claiming that she was humiliated on the job and that she has regularly been passed over for promotion. Twenty-nine year-old Major Genevieve May is the highest ranking female officer for Louisiana State Police and is a commander in the gaming enforcement division.

According to the officer she has applied for a position as lieutenant Colonel many times, but each time she has been passed over and the job has gone to men that had less experience than she did. She also claims that Shreveport Mayor Cedric Glover’s nominee to be city police chief, Henry Whitehorn, embarrassed her on the job on many occasions.

She claims that Whitehorn kissed her hand instead of shaking it, and that while French officers were visiting he told her that her job was to do washing up.

According to reports May and Whitehorn held a meeting last year so that May’s concerns regarding her promotional prospects could be discussed. However, she claims that her concerns were not looked into, and she then had to go to the human resources department and general counsel.
