As the holiday season approaches, I want to personally take this time to acknowledge our outstanding staff and thank them for their vital contribution to this office and our community. I want to thank each one of our deputies and civilian staff for their hard work and encourage you to do the same when you see them.
Their hard work and dedication to our office and community is something we are all very thankful for - not just during the holiday season, but also all year-round. I believe it is very important to show our appreciation to those who have been vital to our organization's success.
I would also like to acknowledge our community for their tremendous support and efforts to help make our area a safer place to live and raise a family. We truly value your input and assistance and are happy to know our website is an important information resource to so many of you.
When considering traveling home for the holidays, please keep in mind that COVID-19 is still existent in the world and in our community. For more information on how to remain safe during your travels, read this CDC article: https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/travelers/travel-during-covid19.html
If you are considering traveling for a holiday or event, visit CDC's Travel page to help you decide what is best for you and your family. CDC still recommends delaying travel until you are fully vaccinated.
For those who will be celebrating the holidays with loved ones, it is important to remember how to celebrate as safely as possible. Remember if you have celebrated too much, please call for a ride or designate a sober driver to take you home. You are a vital part of what we do in Allen Parish and we would like to keep you with us to tackle the New Year ahead.
Have a safe, happy & healthy holiday season.
MERRY CHRISTMAS and GOD BLESS YOU ALL !!!
