Public Awareness and Officer Safety

Posted: August 18th, 2015 | Filed under: SBSO News


To improve public awareness and help with officer safety on St. Bernard Hwy. at Docville Farms in Violet. The Meraux Foundation purchased two signs and stands to alert motorist of Sheriff’s Deputies working the road way ahead. Docville Farms holds events for the public and civic groups both day and night and St. Bernard Sheriff’s Reserve Deputies work St. Bernard Hwy. in the Docville Oaks to let cars out of the parking lot safely. During the day shadows make it hard to see inside the oaks. At nighttime it can get very dark inside the grove of trees. These signs will alert motorist both day and night before they get to the entrance and exit to slow down and be in the look out for deputies working the highway.
