Homeland Security is in fact a natural progression from Crime Prevention. By becoming involved in programs such as Neighborhood Crime Watch you can help us meet this challenge and enhance your community. Homeland security begins with you and it includes us working together as a community to make our neighborhood, community, parish, state, and nation secure. I am very proud of the men and women of this parish for their support. Time and again, you have met the call of duty to help us keep our community safe, and we all have worked hard to provide all citizens of Ascension Parish with a safer place to live. I thank you for your continued support as we make our community a safer place to live and raise our families.
