St. Bernard Sheriff James Pohlmann and members of the Sheriff’s Office were among the volunteers to help St. Bernard Parish special-needs students have their turn in the spotlight on March 29 at the St. Bernard Parish Public School System’s 2019 Louisiana Special Olympics.

More than 100 students participated in this year’s event which took place on the track and football fields at Chalmette High School’s Bobby Nuss Stadium.

Members of the Sheriff’s Office Criminal Investigations Bureau and Special Investigations Division assisted special-needs students as they competed in a variety of track and field events throughout the day, including the softball throw, standing long jump, 100-meter run and wheelchair race.
