The officer said, “He was in his back seat.” “She was in the back seat,” the officer continued.

Jacobs captured the incident and uploaded it to Facebook, the sheriff said.

Ms. Dillon was also a budget analyst at the New Orleans Police Department.

Superintendent Shaun Ferguson stated that “Our team is trying really hard.” She will be greatly missed. She was quiet and very humble. She was a quiet giant. It was because she meant so much to our department, and it tore up our employees.

Jefferson Parish authorities are still investigating.
