Parish rings in new year quietly
“This is something that we plan on doing periodically throughout the year,” Sheriff Mike Stone said. “Due to some of the fatalities we’ve had in the parish in the past couple of months, we want to make sure people drive more carefully.”
Capt. Wesley Harris, public information officer for the LPSO, said a large number of speeding tickets were written as a result of the partnership.
“We had a number of relatively minor accidents, but otherwise it was a very quiet weekend,” he said.
