Rayville Police Chief Willie Robinson states too many citizens are trying to take the law into their own hands.
“I have asked that you allow the police to handle your disputes,” he said. “If you attempt to take care of your own disputes, there is the possibility you will face charges.”
Chief Robinson also advises that when a person is arrested, those charges will appear on his permanent record.
“I can’t stress the importance of keeping your record clean,” he said. “It may not seem like it, but having a criminal record will cause you problems in the future.”
He advises all citizens to keep their records clean by letting the police handle their disputes.
