Special Community Projects
This office regularly assists with activities in the communities we serve, and provides public information to local schools in our area. We also are active in providing community service opportunities in the local community for offenders under our supervision.
We partner with local law enforcement agencies in times of need, assisting with emergency relief efforts such as performing community policing in Assumption Parish during the 2011 Spring flood. DVD also assisted with providing post-Hurricane Isaac disaster relief assistance. In addition, agents help with communit events such as crowd control during the Harvest Festival in New Roads and the Bonfire Festival in Gramercy.
We co-host an annual National Crime Victims Week observance in April of every year in our local communities that gives victims the support that they need to make themselves and their families whole.
Probationers & parolees clean and repair a local school playground.
