§ 2538. Rules
Each board may adopt and execute rules, regulations and orders
necessary or desirable effectively to carry out the provisions of
this Part, and shall do so when expressly required by this Part. No
rule, regulation or order shall be contrary to or in violation of
any provisions, purpose or intent of this Section or contrary to
any other provisions of law. The board may amend or repeal any rule
or part thereof in the same manner provided herein for the adoption
of the rule.
A board may adopt any rule, either in its proposed or revised form,
after holding a public hearing at which any officer or employee of
the government of which the fire or police service is a part, and
any private citizen and the state examiner shall be given an
opportunity to show cause why the proposed rule or amendment, or
any part thereof, should not be adopted. Before the board holds
this public hearing, it shall furnish at least thirty days notice
in advance of the date, time and place therefor to the mayor,
commissioner of public safety, and any other municipal commissioner
whom the rule may in any way affect, or the parish governing
authority or fire protection district governing authority having
jurisdiction over the fire or police service, and to the chief and
each station of the departmental services to be affected by the
adoption of any such rule, and to the state examiner. A copy of all
proposed rules to be discussed at any hearing shall be furnished
with all notices. Each notice and copy of proposed rule furnished
the various stations of the fire and police departments shall be
posted upon the bulletin board of each station for a period of at
least thirty days in advance of the hearing.
Within thirty days after the board has adopted any rule, whether it
is a new rule, an amendment of an existing rule, or an abolition in
whole or part thereof, it shall furnish an official copy thereof to
all persons and places set forth above.
Rules adopted under the authority of this Part shall have the force
and effect of law.
