On July 20, a patrol unit from DeSoto Parish Sheriff’s Office was dispatched to 613 Catuna Road in Catuna in reference to a complaint of numerous dogs in bad health conditions.

One dog was located with severe injuries to its facial area, while eight dogs were tied to a tree by heavy chains. No residents were home at the time.

SAFE Expands to Frierson

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.”

CASA Returns to DeSoto Parish

When Juvenile Court Judge Amy Burford McCartney began her judgeship in DeSoto Parish, she reached out to Volunteers for Youth Justice to see if they would be interested in meeting to discuss bringing Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) back to the parish. CASA had not been a part of DeSoto Parish for several years. After their initial meeting, the lengthy process to bring CASA back began. The CASA Program has now returned to DeSoto Parish to give foster children a voice.

The CASA Program is one of Volunteers for Youth Justice’s programs. CASA volunteers investigate, facilitate, monitor and advocate for children. They are trained volunteers who have been assigned by a judge to speak on behalf of children who are placed in foster care due to abuse or neglect.
