Lawmaker Thanked By Sheriff

Sheriff Jayson Richardson recently travelled to Baton Rouge, La. to meet with Senator Barry Milligan to show his appreciation for the recent $1.8 million package passed to aid Criminal Justice in this Legislative Session.  This package includes $1.5 million dedicated to the North Louisiana Crime Lab, something that Sheriff Richardson has advocated for heavily in our area. 

The package also included $300.000 toward the Louisiana Sheriff’s Task Force for Hurricane Response.  In the attached photo, Sheriff Richardson can been seen presenting Senator Milligan with a token of appreciation for his work in the 2022 Legislative Session on behalf of the Louisiana Sheriff’s Task Force.  Joey Jones also presented his appreciation to Senator Milligan for his continued support for the North Louisiana Crime Lab.
