The JPSO Crime Lab is one of the shining jewels of our organization and we are always proud to show it off! Chief Deputy Tim Scanlan works to keep the JPSO on the cutting edge of technological innovation, and taking a tour of the facility can be fascinating experience.
Yesterday, #LeadershipJefferson visited Jefferson Parish Sheriff's Office Crime Lab for a tour of its truly state-of-the-art facility. They learned about crime ...scene investigation, and how and why the JPSO is so efficient and one of the best in the state and nation.
Special thanks to Chief Scanlan and Major Pitfield for being so informative and going above and beyond for the group #JeffersonChamber
Sheriff Joseph Lopinto has called a 4p.m. News Conference to discuss the murder arrest of Byron Montgomery (44) of Marrero. You can watch the press conference right here on Facebook live.
The JPSO is excited to be hosting the Louisiana Association of Crisis Negotiators annual conference this year! This morning Sheriff Lopinto gave the opening remarks and kicked off three days of intense training for law enforcement officers who act as negotiators during hostage or other dangerous situations.
We are especially glad to be joined by our brothers and sisters in Louisiana law enforcement for this important event!
Don't forget about this awesome fundraiser being organized by some of our guys. Make sure to get your donations in before the event on Friday!
We are incredibly proud of JPSO Lieutenant Rene LaCombe, and his team The Sheepdogs, as they work together with St. Baldrick's Foundation to raise money for chi...ldhood cancer research!
They will be participating in a head-shaving fundraiser on March 16th, 2018 at The Rivershack Tavern (3449 River Road Jefferson LA), and they would appreciate your support!
For the details of the fundraising, here are some words from Lieutenant LaCombe:
"Did you know that worldwide, a child is diagnosed with cancer every two minutes – that’s 300,000 kids every year! This is why I’m shaving my head along with The Sheepdogs (Deputy Nathan Penton, Deputy Brett Beavers, my youngest son Zachary and friend Michael Knight) on March 16th, 2018 at The Rivershack Tavern 3449 River Road Jefferson LA, to raise money for childhood cancer research.
I would be honored if you supported me with a donation to help me exceed my fundraising goal of $1500 for me and $3000 for the team.
Your investment supports the St. Baldrick’s Foundation, the largest non-government funder of childhood cancer research grants. Please visit my personal fundraising page at https://www.stbaldricks.org/participants/TheHeadSheepdog2018 to make a donation and learn more about St. Baldrick’s. The following are the direct links for the team, as well as the other team members so you can donate to the cause. You can also go to the team link and join in with us as a shave or other volunteer.

Huge thanks to Green Park Elementary School for welcoming JPSO deputies Taranto and Barran into your classrooms! They came to discuss several topics with the students, including what Police do and don't do; how Police help the community; and how the children can help us solve crimes using who, what, where, when, why, and how.
Please take a look at the flyer below about a blood drive for Kamden Darcey, a young boy who was recently diagnosed with leukemia. Kamden is the nephew of JPSO Third District Reserve Deputy Christi Darcey.
The blood drive will be ongoing at any of The Blood Center donation sites. Make sure to state at the time of donation that you’re making a donation for Kamden Darcey.
If at any point over the last 2 years you’ve asked Jaxson what he wants to be when he grows up, without hesitation he’ll tell you that he wants to be a police o...fficer. When his obsession began, we ran into an officer and J insisted on buying him lunch. When we brought it over to him, the officer gave him a Slidell PD sticker and you would’ve thought he’d given him a million dollars. Fast forward 2 years later, we’re at dinner Saturday night and as we were leaving we stopped to ask the officer at the restaurant if she’d take a picture of us. Of course he had to let her know he wanted to be just like her when he grew up. So she took him over to her car, gave him an official patch, talked with him for a little bit and even took a picture with him. So shoutout to this Jefferson Parish Sheriff's Office deputy who took a few minutes out of her night & made my son’s YEAR. He’s already made me promise to sew the patch on his jacket by the end of the week and he wants to print out the picture so he can hang it in his room. You didn’t have to do any of what you did and you’ve made my little boy feel like the most special kid on the planet. Thank you ♥️ #thelittlethings
