AGENCIES SAY LIFTING CHECKPOINTS
INCREASES AVAILABILITY OF PATROLS
Checkpoints have been lifted in Cameron Parish.
The Cameron Parish Police Jury, Cameron Parish Sheriff’s Office and Cameron Parish OHSEP want to jointly explain the reasons for this change.
The Cameron Parish Sheriff’s Office reasons that it can provide more security to the residents by reassigning the deputies from checkpoints to supplement the roving patrols.
By reassigning those deputies, the Sheriff’s Office is able to double — and in some cases, triple — the number of patrol officers.
The three agencies are in agreement that roving patrols are in the best interest of the parish and its residents and are the best use of available resources.
