DeSoto Parish Sheriff’s Office has spent the past six weeks traveling around the parish to visit senior citizens as part of their Security Awareness for the Elderly (SAFE) Program. Frierson was one of the few areas in the parish that did not have a senior citizen complex for the sheriff and deputies to meet with the citizens. DPSO turned to the Fire District 9 Ladies Auxiliary to help find a place for them to meet.

“We worked with the Ladies Auxiliary here in Frierson and were able to secure a date and a time, and they got with the community,” Sheriff Jayson Richardson said. “We’re just glad we were able to come out and be able to fellowship with the people here and pass on some much needed information, and also just build some new relationships in the community, not just with myself, but with our deputies, and inviting the fire department as well to join in.”
