Congrats to Sergeant Tyler Daigle. Sgt. Daigle has been with Broussard Police Department since 2014. He quickly transferred to the traffic division where he has mastered his enforcement capabilities. Tyler is an asset to the department and has grown from within and ascended to supervisor. Tyler has been to multiple training courses throughout his tenure with Broussard Police which makes him highly qualified and competent.

All lanes open and no congestion. Thanks for your patience.

Broussard Police Department is working a fatality on US 90. Roads are open but expect heavy congestion near N. Morgan.

Another senseless killing of a Trooper! Please pray for his family and agency as they go through this difficult time.

** Update** as of 0915 lights have been fixed Traffic Signals Main St @ Morgan St are not functioning properly. Please remember to treat the intersection as a 4 way stop until lights are functioning properly again. DOTD has been notified of the problem.

The westbound right turning lane to turn from US90 onto Smede Hwy is closed due to a diesel leak. First responders are working to clear it up but it may be an hour until it opens.

Heavy police presence in Broussard but everyone is safe and the area is safe on St. Ignatius.

Alternating lane closures of the travel lanes of US 90 westbound between Ambassador Caffery Parkway and the LA 182 overpass will be in place. This work will take place nightly Wednesday, October 10 through Saturday, October 13 from 8pm to 6am as needed for construction.

One of our newest officers, Dale Wells, decided to play basketball with some of the kids in Cypress Crossing while he was patrolling. This is exactly what community policing is about.

Thanks for having us there to talk and meet the kids. We want them to know that we are their friend and to come to us when they need. #communitypolicing #broussardpolice
