Law Enforcement Ball to raise funds for NPSO Honor Guard

The Natchitoches Parish Sheriff’s Office will hold its 4th annual Law Enforcement Ball Saturday, Jan. 14 at 7 p.m. in the Student Union Ballroom on Northwestern’s campus. Tickets are $20 per person.

The event is open to the public and tickets can be purchased by contacting any of the members of the Honor Guard or emailing Siggie Silvie at

The NPSO Honor Guard is a select group of deputies that volunteer their service with a high degree of pride and self determination. The Honor Guard’s goal is to serve Natchitoches Parish as a visual reminder of the service and traditions of law enforcement.

They represent the Parish and the Sheriff’s Office at various functions and ceremonies and provide last honors for fallen members, past and present, with respect and dignity.

The Law Enforcement Ball raises funds to defray the cost of uniforms and equipment for the Honor Guard. Funds raised also allow the Honor Guard to travel to represent Natchitoches Parish at memorial services honoring fallen officers who have died in the line of duty across the state.
