Salute to Our Fallen Officers
St. Charles Parish's Heroic Officers
Law officers nationwide put their lives on the line every day. For the men and women of the St. Charles Parish Sheriff's Office, many days are routine. In the flash of an eye, however, even the most routine call can unexpectedly turn deadly. It's at those times that officers perform great acts of heroism. We celebrate the dedication of those who have gone above and beyond the call of duty - those who survived to face another day and those for whom the bell tolls.
Honoring Local Officers Killed in the Line of Duty
The St. Charles Parish Sheriff's Office honors the three men who unselfishly paid the ultimate price in the course of protecting the people of our parish. Sheriff Lewis Ory
, Deputy James Alan Arterbury
, Deputy Nelson Coleman
and Deputy Jeff G. Watson
will forever be held in the highest esteem.
