On Tuesday, October 4, 2022, the St. Tammany Parish Sheriff's Office will be participating in National Night Out Against Crime, and they are participating in a big way this year.
This year, in addition to attending events hosted and held in neighborhoods, the STPSO will be hosting its own events at each of its four district offices. Residents are encouraged to stop by at one of these events between 5 and 8 p.m. Tuesday.
These events will provide residents an opportunity to meet the supervisors and deputies working in their district, to find out about services available and to share their concerns.
Neighborhoods are welcome to set up a table/tent at these events, or residents can come on their own. Food, bounce houses and entertainment will be provided at each event.
The location of the district offices are as follows:
1st District - 300 Brownswitch Road, Slidell
2nd District - 3926 Hwy 59, Mandeville
3rd District - At future home on Brewster Road, Covington (behind Target)
4th District - 81635 Hwy 41, Bush
In addition to these four events, representatives from the various divisions within the STPSO will be attending 16 registered parties that are planned in neighborhoods throughout the parish.
National Night Out is a nation-wide crime prevention event. The night is designed to heighten crime prevention awareness, increase neighborhood support in anti-crime efforts, and unite our communities. It is a great chance to learn about crime prevention, while also celebrating your community and spending time with your neighbors and local law enforcement. Nationally the event is held during the month of August, but due to the extreme heat, many locations in South Louisiana have changed the date to the month of October.
“I am very excited to be hosting our own events at our district offices this year,” Sheriff Randy Smith said. “I encourage everyone to come out, and I look forward to seeing as many residents as possible as I travel around the parish.”
