Scott Police Department News

On March 1, 2018, Scott Police Department was dispatched to a residence in which the caller advised that while speaking to a friend on the phone at the residence, she began to speak of a medical emergency taking place. As the conversation continued, the caller learned that the friend suffered a laceration from the bend in her elbow to her wrist. Officers responded to the scene to find the female resident in her bathroom and the large laceration causing arterial bleeding. The caller had arrived and applied pressure to the wound. Sgt. Chris Taylor (pictured center) was first to arrive and assisted by reapplying pressure in the area to prevent additional bleeding. POFC Juan Leger (right) and POFC Daryous (left) then arrived and was able to apply a tourniquet obtained from his Scott Police Department issued Trauma Kit. Once paramedics arrived, officers were able to assist in loading the victim into the ambulance while having to apply another tourniquet to the arm to suppress more bleeding. The victim was transported to a local hospital for medical treatment. Officers were able to verify later that the victim was in stable condition. In recent years, many medical emergencies have called for police officers to begin lifesaving measures prior to the arrival of medical personnel. Every second counts when attempting to save a life. Scott Police Department has equipped their officers with, in addition to basic First-Aid Kits, specialized trauma kits to treat severe wounds such as gun shots and deep lacerations. Using skills learned in their training, responding officers for this incident, Sgt. Chris Taylor, POFC Juan Leger, and POFC Daryous Portalis were able to provide quick lifesaving measures for someone in need. These officers exemplify our motto of “An Honor to Serve, A Duty to Protect”.

During an ongoing investigation of multiple vehicle burglaries and a stolen vehicle in the Scott area, a fingerprint was lifted from two vehicles. The fingerprint was matched to Kendrick Kelly, 19 of Duson. A warrant was issued for Kelly’s arrest on 2 counts of Simple Burglary.

On March 2, 2018, Kelly was arrested on those warrants by Lafayette Parish Sheriff’s Office when he was located riding a bicycle on the roadway. Investigators with the Scott Police Department, Lafayette Parish Sheriff’s Office, and Broussard Police Department interviewed Kelly after he was taken into custody. During these interviews, Kelly admitted to breaking into the vehicles in all three areas that occurred from February 18th-23rd. Kelly also admitted to being involved with and being in possession of several stolen vehicles in all three jurisdictions.
