Crime-fighting strategies show results as new Training Center nears completion
Training Center scheduled for completion in 2015
This has been an exciting year for the St. Charles Parish Sheriff's Office. During the first six months of 2014, crime statistics show fairly significant decreases, according to the F.B.I. Uniform Crime Reporting System.
These numbers are some of the best in a decade. This indicates that tbe strategies we have implemented over the years are paying off. It also indicates that the level of dedication and commitment of our deputies is high.
We are also anxiously awaiting the completion of our new Training Facility being constructed next door to our headquarters on Judge Edward Dufresne Parkway in Luling. We expect it to open in the spring of 2015. Training has always been the cornerstone of my vision for the St. Charles Parish Sheriff's Office. This will provide our Training Division with a state-of-the-art facility to conduct this most important business.
We hold one of the very few coveted training certificates issued by the State of Louisiana to maintain a P.O.S.T. Academy, and I am proud that we are responsible for the training of cadets, not only from the St. Charles Parish Sheriff's Office, but also for cadets of several surrounding sheriff's offices and police departments.
While we are extremely proud and pleased with the progress we have made over the last several years, we will never rest on past successes and will continue to strive to constantly improve the quality of our service to you. Please enjoy this issue of our UPDATE!
