At the February 20th City Council Meeting we honored someone that was long overdue for this recognition, Mr. LP Bourque has supported our Police Dept for years and has never been too busy to give us a tow. He operates a successful business that is driven by his tireless work ethic and a demand to provide professional service. On behalf of SMPD Officers, past & present, THANK YOU Mr. LP!

February 17, 2017 Over the last several months, within the city limits of St. Martinville, there have been over 20 incidents of property damage caused by unknown persons shooting BB guns randomly at resident’s homes and cars. This irresponsible behavior has caused our neighbors to spend their hard earned money on repairs and has them uncomfortable at their own home fearing when the next incident will occur. This is completely unacceptable and we are reaching out to the community for assistance in apprehending the person(s) committing these crimes. If you have information, please call St. Martin Crime Stoppers at: 337-441-3030. All callers will remain anonymous and are eligible to receive a cash reward if the information leads to an arrest. Thanks for your efforts in keeping OUR City safe, Calder Hebert, Chief PLEASE SHARE TO HELP YOUR NEIGHBOR

Thanks to the wonderful staff at the Early Head Start for allowing us to spend Tuesday morning reading with the students. This positive environment that surrounds the kids is so important at such an impressionable age. Deputy Chief Nedie, Officer Simon and I were honored to be invited and look forward to the next reading day. Please keep up the great work with our little ones!

Halloween Trick or Treat hours will be on Monday October 31st from 6 P.M. to 8 P.M. Please drive with extra caution during these hours as OUR Little Ones will be distracted with the various costumes while walking house to house. Have a great time and be safe.

I would like to thank Mayor Thomas Nelson and the SM City Council for their support of SMPD. The majority of our patrol units had served their better days and repairs costs became unacceptable. With the addition of five new units, we will be utilizing tax payer dollars in a more responsible manner. Thanks again to Mayor Nelson for working with me to improve SMPD!

During trying times like we are facing with this flood, the true characteristics of people tend to show: positive or negative. We receive support from residents and business owners and we really appreciate all of it. One local business owner and lifetime resident of St Martinville helped SMPD without hesitation in a time of need. We took on some water Saturday evening and didn't have the tools necessary to remove the water. Although the hardware store was closed, Mr. Lowell Gauthier (owner of Joyce's Supermarket) made sure we were equipped to prevent permanent damage to the police station. We worked through the night and today our station looks like we didn't receive a drop of water. In addition to equipping us with supplies, he insisted on providing lunch on Sunday to the SMPD Staff. BTW, this is not the first time he has supported SMPD. Mr. Lowell has always helped his community through countless fundraisers and very likely many things that I'm unaware of: I just want to publicly recognize his generosity for all in SM, Thanks Mr. Lowell!

The curfew that was set in place due to the flooding waters has been lifted. This doesn't mean that there are no longer areas of high water on the roadways or overflowing in some roadside ditches. Please use extreme caution when traveling. Be safe and courteous!

There will be a curfew from Saturday night beginning at 8 P.M. until Sunday morning at 6 A.M. in the City of St. Martinville and the entire Parish of St. Martin. For the safety and protection of all, we ask that this curfew be observed by all citizens.

I'm grateful that we have new flags on display at SMPD and it is due to thoughtful citizens wanting to support Law Enforcement. Thanks to Ronald and Pamela Rayburn, SMPD now proudly displays both the US and Louisiana flags. In addition to the flags and new hardware, this patriotic couple also installed a solar powered light that will allow our flags to fly 24/7. These acts of kindness and support are appreciated anytime, but are especially encouraging for all of us in BLUE during the trying times that we are experiencing.

Thanks to Ross Bernard and his friendly staff at State Farm for hosting breakfast. The Team of SMPD and SMSO enjoyed the great conversation and it was a great way to begin our day. We REALLY do APPRECIATE your support!

On behalf of the Officers and Staff of SMPD: THANKS for all the support and encouragement we have received from OUR COMMUNITY in the wake of the recent tragedies. From the kind words we hear on the streets, to the tasty treats that have been provided for our enjoyment. This gives us motivation to continue on our chosen mission of protecting OUR CITY. WE have to stand TOGETHER in order to conquer these trying times our nation is facing. We will continue to do our job, and you can continue depending on us to protect and serve you.

CONGRATS to Officer Doug Simon! He has earned and been awarded as Officer of the Quarter Doug has taken pride in assuring order at the ELC campus where the youngest of our school kids are transported daily. He isn't just a cop car with lights on, Doug is active with both school staff and the public alike. He displays a smile while being part of the community, but gets firm when the situation calls for enforcement. Although Officer Simon is considered part-time status, his contribution to SMPD is 24/7.
