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.

Rocky's Big Bust

While conducting a traffic stop, Patrol Deputy Christopher LaFleur and his K-9 Rocky uncovered a large cache of cash and illegal drugs.

Deputy LaFleur's discovery, ultimately aided JDSO Deputies to the arrest of three individuals and the seizure of pills and marijuana, as well as $409,915 recovered from the incident.

JDP District Attorney Elliot Cassidy immediately began procedures to get the seized money into court to legally forfeit it to the parish.


Thank you and great job, Deputy LaFleur and K-9 Rocky!


National Night Out

For the fifth year in a row, the Lake Arthur Police Department hosted the Annual National Night Out.

Deputies with JDSO participated in the annual community event along with several other local agencies, including the LAPD, the Lake Arthur Fire Department, Louisiana State Police Troop D, Acadian Ambulance and Louisiana Wildlife and Fisheries.
