Sheriff’s Office Visits Local Library

On July 24, 2023, Mrs. Celia Norman teamed up with Red River Parish Sheriff’s deputies to speak with participants of the Red River Parish Library’s Summer Reading Program.  Several functions offered by the sheriff were explained to children in attendance.

Mrs. Norman and Sgt. Michael Longino spoke about swimming and water safety skills while Deputy Dean Allison talked about boating safety.  Sgt. Daren Keel explained how our department’s drone can be used for a variety of important reasons and actually flew it high overhead for the interested group to see.

To the delight of the crowd, K-9 Deputy Darryl Jordan brought along his K-9 partner Marco. Deputy Jordan not only demonstrated how they work together but also explained how Marco helps fight crime in our community.

The Red River Parish Sheriff’s Office was glad to be able to participate in this year’s program. Sheriff Edwards wishes everyone a safe and enjoyable conclusion to this summer as well as a great school year.
