|8/6/2013 - NATIONAL NIGHT OUT|
Lafayette Parish law enforcement agencies are inviting the public to join them tonight at four parishwide events geared toward community crime prevention.
National Night Out, the nation’s largest crime prevention event, is held in 15,000 communities in all 50 states to encourage police and community partnerships, local officials said.
“It’s a way that we can connect with the community and the community can connect with itself,” Lafayette Police Department spokesman Cpl. Paul Mouton said.
“I think the most important thing about National Night Out is that the neighbors can get back to knowing who their neighbors are. That in itself is a big help to law enforcement as far as for crime prevention.”
The events will feature SWAT teams, horse patrol, motorcycle units, bicycle patrols and the Lafayette Police command bus. There will also be music, fun jumps, food and games, Mouton said.
The events will be held in Girard Park, Martin Luther King Center and in Broussard and Duson. Authorities will be on hand to talk to residents about crime concerns in their neighborhoods, Lafayette Parish Sheriff’s Office spokesman Capt. Craig Stansbury said.
“It helps us come together and exchange information and ideas,” Stansbury said. “We are all pulling for a common goal, and obviously, when the community has its eyes and ears open in conjunction with law enforcement, that makes us so much more effective.”
|8/1/2013 - Trikke purchased for Scott Police Department|
The Lafayette Crime Stoppers recently purchased a TRIKKE to be used by the Resource Officer at Acadiana High School in Scott La. This TRIKKE will be used as a tool for the Officer to be more visible at school and to be able to patrol the parking lots and the school areas more efficiently. This will allow for a faster response time from the officer when a situation arises on campus.
See School Program Tab for a video of the TRIKKE being used in the school.
