From the DeSoto Sheriff’s Office:
As soon as one day after Hurricane Ida hit south Louisiana, Sheriff Richardson has rotated several teams of DeSoto Parish Deputies to be on the ground helping residents and law enforcement. They have been patrolling in an attempt to discourage looting, helping with rescue operations, cleanup, among many other tasks both on land and in the water.
Deputy Daniel Miller sent some images that have been taken over the last several days, and we thought we would share them with the public. Most are from Grand Isle, Houma, and Golden Meadows.
To our residents in DeSoto Parish we humbly say, THANK YOU.
Thank you for your generous donations that have been sent to help our brothers and sisters down south. Our deputies may be the feet on the ground, but your generosity has assisted residents and deputies in numerous ways. From feeding, providing a clean place to sleep, cooling with a fan, a clean diaper on a baby, and even feeding displaced animals….the list goes on and on.
We are still there and will remain until we are no longer needed. We ask that you continue to keep those affected by this disaster in your thoughts and prayers as we move forward.
