Monday night kicked off our fourth women’s self-defense class of the year with 20 women in attendance! This is a great asset to our parish and I hope that you will take part in the future if you haven’t already. Our personal safety curriculum is designed to help women effectively recognize criminal tactics and the realistic experience in class so if it becomes necessary they will have the self defense skills to successfully fight back.

Thank you to the many CPSO employees who helped to make this program a great success. We would also like to thank the parents who entrusted the care of their kids over to us to participate in this program. The Concordia Parish Sheriff's Office is dedicated to making a positive change in the lives of our parish's youth. Chief David Hedrick

UPDATED 6/28/2018 5:25 P.M.: In the early morning hours of June 12th, 2018, a 74 year old retired school teacher was robbed at gun point in Ferriday, LA. Two ROBBERY suspects are now in custody in Gulfport, MS. awaiting extradiction to Concordia Parish by the U.S. Marshal Service. After stealing the victim's purse, the two robbery suspects dumped the contents into a garbage container where the victim's checkbook was later found by the three individuals now in custody for forgery. Arrested for forgery were Katina Banks-23 of Ferriday, Zhane Green-19 of Ferriday, and Kenderrick Green-25 of Ferriday. All three forgery suspects have been extradited from Gulfport, MS. back to Concordia Parish by the U.S. Marshal Service. We would like to thank CPSO Detective, Chris Groh, for leading the investigation that led to the apprehension of these suspects as well as the Ferriday Police Department for their assistance.

The Concordia Parish Sheriff’s Office Youth Outreach Program was a great success this week. Early Tuesday morning before day break, Concordia Parish youth arrived at the Concordia Parish Sheriff’s Office to start their day. The youth involved in the program were nervous and parents reported that the youth had a hard time sleeping Monday night in anticipation of Tuesday’s program. Concordia Parish Deputies & Correctional Officers transported the youth to the prison on Hwy.15 where the youth began the 12 hour program. The youth were shown the everyday life of an inmate. From lockdown cells, dorm, chow hall & visitation with the parents, each youth got to experience the “inmate life”. The youth were counseled on the use of alcohol, drugs, and anger management. Our prison Chaplin also counseled the youth on everyday peer pressure. We would like to thank Leah Young, Craig Hawn & Deon Neal with Young’s Funeral Home. Tyler Price, ZaKeedra McKeel-Turner, Sherricka Smith and Wendy Paul with New Horizon Counseling Agency for their help with the counseling of the parents. Special thanks to our employees, Justin Stevens, Tiffany Davis, Gayle Coleman, Quinton Chatman, Dakota Allen, Lee Ford, Jackie Johnson, Suzanne Laffitte, Chief Byrnes, Lt. Seyfarht, Lt. Harper, Mandy Wooten, Leann Evans, Patrick McCarthy, Randy Collier, Komminica Collins, Chaplin Richardson, Jennifer Wadlington, Nolan Morrison, and Dianne Hutcherson. Without you all we could not have made this program the great success that it was. I would especially like to thank the employees who worked diligently for weeks to create, research, implement, and spear-head this program; Walter Mackel, John Cowan, Chris Strickland, Warden Lance Moore, Phillip Smith, Elizabeth Atkins and Tamiko Turner-Bloodsaw. This program would not have been possible if it wasn’t for you men and women hearing my idea and then bringing it to life. We would also like to thank the parents who saw the need for this program and with love and concern for their children, allowed them to enter into this extremely successful program. We understood the parents' anxiety when dropping their kids off at 5 A.M with total strangers and we applauded their bravery because we know that this step was necessary in the future success of their children. PARENTS WE COMMEND YOU!!!!! We encourage any parent or guardian to contact us (318-336-5231) for more information on registering your child for our next class to be held on Thursday July 26, 2018. Chief Deputy David Hedrick!
