Natchitoches Parish Sheriff Stuart Wright, said “On behalf of the Natchitoches Parish Sheriff’s Office, we can’t thank you enough. You hear talk of areas defunding the police, but someone actually cares about us to give us this money for our operations. It is humbling. We appreciate this so much; this will be a great help to us. This money will help us purchase four new four-wheel drive patrol vehicles to respond to areas in Natchitoches Parish where two-wheel drive are unable to respond. We all know in an emergency seconds count.”
