Our Sheriff’s Department Helps a Neighbor

The Shelby County, Texas Sheriff’s Department new release stated:

Sunday, November 13, 2022, the Shelby County Sheriff’s Office responded to a crime scene in the Sand Isle Community in Joaquin. During this investigation, Jayson Richardson, Sheriff of DeSoto Parish, Louisiana, stepped up and provided assistance to the Shelby County Sheriff’s Office.

Sheriff Richardson brought in a state-of-the-art command center that provided our deputies and investigators the ability to discuss the situation at hand, charge equipment and provide lighting to the scene. Sheriff Richardson brought in deputies, a tracking dog, and a helicopter to search the area for the suspect who was seen fleeing the scene on foot.

The manpower and dedication the Desoto Parish Sheriff’s Office showed our agency is more that we could have ever asked for. The time, knowledge and tools provided, allowed our agency to thoroughly process the scene and bring those responsible for this heinous crime to jail.

The Shelby County Sheriff’s Office will be forever grateful.

Sheriff Richardson posted that they were just lending a helping hand to a neighbor that would do just the same. It’s what community is all about. Thanks to SCSO for sharing! Please continue keeping this family in your thoughts and prayers.

Additional praise for the  cooperative effort was voiced by the Logansport Chamber of Commerce, “We are so thankful for our DeSoto Parish Sheriff Jason Richardson and his team for always stepping up and helping out wherever needed to not only help fellow agencies but helping the family of  this perpetrator.”
