Let's Clean Up

Thank you to the DuPont employees who spent the morning of January 27, 2023 picking up trash, debris and other litter near the facility grounds on River Road in Reserve.
The sight of litter that piles up on our roads and highways is awful. The SJSO works to combat the litter problem in our community. We find it hard to understand why anyone would think littering is OK.
Since the Department of Corrections has reduced the number of inmates housed at the St. John Parish jail, our work crew is unable to assist with trash pickup in our community on a regular basis.
Therefore, we are calling on industry, businesses, schools and churches, as well as individuals in our neighborhoods to please help clean up our community. We ask you to please look around your industry, business, school, church and home to make sure it is free of litter and kept tidy.
Please, everyone, do your part to help clean up St. John Parish.

Sheriff Meets With Clergy

Sheriff Mike Tregre welcomed several pastors and clergy members from local churches to a prayer breakfast hosted by the St. John Parish Sheriff’s Office January 27, 2023 at the Lloyd B. Johnson Law Enforcement Training Center in LaPlace.
The faith community serves as an important link between the SJSO and the citizens the agency protects and serves, and church leaders can build stronger, safer communities working with law enforcement to reinforce this connection, Sheriff Mike Tregre told the clergy.
“I’m calling on you, the clergy, to help us build a better and safer St. John Parish,” Sheriff Mike Tregre said. “You have the resources and influence …. to help us develop deeper connections to the community and …. to help the community connect to us. My door is always open to hear your ideas …. to build productive relationships within our neighborhoods.”
Sheriff Tregre told the group protecting and serving the citizens of St. John Parish remains his priority.
With juvenile crime in the area on the rise, the SJSO works diligently to build closer relationships with children, Sheriff Tregre said. Teens and Traffic Stops, Toys for Tots, Punt, Pass & Kick, and a kids fishing camp are among annual events the SJSO hostsfor youth.
Continuing education for officers, Citizens Academy, body cameras, and Narcan usage were among other topics he touched upon.A taser demonstration also was held.
Sheriff Tregre said he was grateful for the clergy giving up a morning of their valuable time to attend the event.
