Effective midnight February 10, 2016, I resign my position as sheriff of Assumption Parish. My successor will be Chief Criminal Deputy, Bruce Prejean, a 25 year law enforcement professional, who will serve out the remainder of my term which ends June 30, 2016.
It has indeed been an honor and privilege to serve the People of Assumption Parish for nearly 16 years. As I transition to the next chapter of my life, I feel this is the right time for me and my family to pursue our next opportunities.
I pray for the continued success and safety of our Law Enforcement Community. I especially pray that God continues to bless and protect the many men and women who wear the badge to protect and serve our great nation, state and parish.
