Last year, in addition to our normal operations, we successfully faced the challenge of the flooding in May and June. This effort was testament to the response and management capabilities of the Office of Homeland Security and Emergency Preparedness, which is managed by the NPSO. I also want to thank the citizens for working to together with us and their fellow citizens to protect our parish during this time. We were able to do our best to assist citizens in protecting their homes, property, and livestock. Our office continues to remain ready and to be prepared to respond should any future disaster occur.
In this same regard, citizen safety will be one of our main focuses in 2016. Our office will continue to assist citizens in being safe by providing education and support to prevent fraud and identity theft, prevention of weather related accidents, and protecting our children and families from internet-related crime. Simply put, we can not be over prepared nor too safe when protecting our most valuable asset of Natchitoches Parish, our people.
The deputies of the Natchitoches Parish Sheriff’s Office wish you a happy and a safe new year. If you need any assistance, please contact us at 352-6432. As always, it is our pleasure to continue serving you.
