I want to thank each and every one of them for their hard work and encourage you to do the same when you see them.

We look forward to the holiday season, and we hope you do as well. My commitment to the citizens of this Parish remains strong, and I will continue to work with the members of our community to improve the quality of life for each of you.
Sheriff Douglas Hebert III
We once again come to you to ask for your help in a matter of an urgent nature. On Sunday Morning a mentally ill patient by the name of Chevy Eaves was under what is known as an OPC (Order of Protective Custody) placed by a family member. Chevy was being transported by Acadian Ambulance from the Allen Parish Hospital in Kinder to a Mental care facility in Alexandria, La. Eaves became nervous and was able to jump from the ambulance and escaped the custody of the paramedics, while in transport. Mr. Eaves was last seen in the woods behind Tractor Supply in Oakdale, La. Chevy is wearing a red shirt with gray sweat pants, and no shoes. If you see this person DO NOT approach him. Please call the Allen Parish Sheriff's Office @ 337-639-4353 or 911.

As a result of Tropical Storm Harvey, after having to deal with the winds and rain, we must now deal with the inevitable after effects. Areas along the rivers in our parish will now begin to swell with massive amounts of water from the previous storm. So now it is our time to prepare for the rivers to rise. Please make preparations in these areas if you reside there as the waters are predicted to rise. The following areas will be affected:
Calcasieu river @ Oakdale is expected to reach 17 feet by Saturday afternoon, Flood stage is 12 feet.
Calcasieu river @ Oberlin is expected to reach 21 feet by Sunday evening, Flood Stage is 13 feet.
Calcasieu river @ Kinder is expected to reach 21.5 feet by Friday evening, flood stage is 16 feet.
Quiska Chitto River @ Hwy 26 has crested at 20.3 feet, Flood stage is 15 feet.
Please if you live near the rivers, make preparations to leave if necessary. If you have any problems, please call 911 or the Allen Parish Sheriff's Office for assistance. God Bless and Take Care!!
Roads in our parish have began to flood, Please DO NOT try to go through this high water if possible. It only takes 6 inches of water to float a vehicle, also you may not know if the roadway is washed out and it may be deeper than it looks. PLEASE BE CAREFUL, Call 911 or the Allen Parish Sheriff's Office if you have any issues or concerns. We will assist you to the best of our ability.
