The Denham Springs Police Department teamed up with United Blood Services by hosting a blood drive Tuesday. Our goal was 11 units, and we more than doubled that. If you didn’t have a chance to make it to the police department and are interested in donating, you can visit their Baton Rouge Donor Center at 8234 Calais Drive in Baton Rouge. Call (877) 827-4376 www.unitedbloodservices.org or www.bloodhero.com to set up an appointment or to find a blood drive near you.
Can you help us identify this man? He was the driver of a late model white Nissan Titan involved in a hit and run at a local convenience store last week. Please call our detectives at (225) 665-5106 if you have any information. Thank you.
The Denham Springs Police Department and Denham Springs Union of Police are proud to partner with Barran’s Bears, a non-profit organization that provides Teddy Bears to Police Officers and First Responders to utilize at scenes where children are faced with “adult problems” such as domestic violence, illness, injury etc. These little guys are precious and hopefully will provide comfort to our littlest citizens.
Congratulations to our Kiwanis Peace Officer of the Year, Sydney McCullough. We are proud to have her as our own. Her dedication to the profession and this community is unparalleled. Keep up the good work.
Congratulations to our own Officer Daniel Beadle! He was selected as our 2017 Peace Officer of the Year and honored by the Denham Springs Kiwanis Club during their 44th annual awards banquet at Forrest Grove Plantation. His selflessness, hard work and commitment to the rebuilding of the police department after the August flooding are a few reasons why he was chosen by his peers for this award. We are proud of Officer Beadle and certainly appreciate his dedication to our department and his profession.
We are proud to announce that The Rotary Club of Livingston Parish recognized our own Corporal Keith Scoby during an awards ceremony on June 23rd. Scoby was chosen as a recipient of The Rotary’s annual James Foster Memorial Service Above Self Awards, for always going above and beyond in his service to our community. Receiving this award was exceptionally meaningful to him because he and James Foster attended the Police Academy together, and eventually became close friends. Corporal Scoby now serves as our School Resource Officer. Congratulations, Corporal. Thank you for your hard work and dedication.
