During the 2021 year, the Jefferson Davis Parish Sheriff's Office (JDPSO) participated in several community projects, while serving the citizens of JDP.

In the shadow of 2020 Covid-19 precautions and mandates that limited and canceled many community programs, events and functions, the agency has been eager to continue many of their regular activities, training and events, as well as participating in many public functions.

Remembering Winston

This year brought about several memorial services, events and ceremonies honoring our fallen brother, Claude Winston Guillory, 63, who died in August of 2020 due to complications from COVID-19.

These memorial events included a visit from the Beyond the Call of Duty End of Watch Memorial Motorcycle Ride, an unexpected gift, the addition of Guillory's name to the local Police Memorial Park Wall, the Medal of Honor Ceremony and the National Law Enforcement Memorial Fund Ceremony in our Nation's Capital.

This last year has felt like a lifetime without our brother, father, grandfather, husband and friend.

Beyond the Call of Duty, End of Watch Memorial Ride - In July of 2021, The Beyond the Call of Duty, End of Watch Ride is a law enforcement memorial motorcycle ride that tours across America, visiting every agency that lost an officer in the line of duty. The over 17,000 mile ride also includes a trailer featuring the photo of every man and woman who paid the ultimate price to serve and protect their communities during that year. Members and participants of the ride also honor the family members of the fallen who are left behind to pick up the pieces following the loss of their loved ones.

It included other Louisiana stops in Baton Rouge, Church Point, New Orleans and Pear River. Six escort motorcycles, as well as two trucks pulling trailers filled with pictures of 328 fallen officers honored for this year, were the heart of the ride.
