The regularly scheduled meeting of the Mansfield Lions Club on 6/14/22 was at the Clista A. Calhoun Center for lunch. The guest speaker was Assistant Police Chief Billy Locke who brought us up to date on current events and the crime rate in Mansfield. Asst. Chief Locke said that the key to fighting future crime and keeping our citizens safe is the coordination and cooperation he now has with Sheriff Richardson and the DeSoto Parish Sheriff’s Office. He credits the current success and convictions with two major crime events here to joint efforts with the Sheriff and the hard work of District Attorney Charles Adams. He said he has many future plans of improvement for and upgrades to the city police force.
The Lions meet every 2nd and 4th Tuesday for a catered lunch at the Clista A. Calhoun Center. If you are interested in service and the networking possibilities that the Lions offer please call Van Reech at 318-540-7500.
