ABBEVILLE — The Vermilion Parish Sheriff's office will be offering free ACT Prep courses in 2020.

The course will be open to all students of Vermilion Parish lunch will also be provided the day of the course. Classes will be offered throughout the year and you can register for them online.

"I am very excited to offer this program to the students of the parish. Today's Law Enforcement profile has drastically changed from days of old. Yes, we are still in the business of protecting, but serving the community is just as important in today's world. Through this program we want to continue our progress in raising awareness of the importance of a higher education, and the positive influence of community policing. It's no secret that when the youth are involved in furthering their education, extracurricular activities, and positive alternatives, then they become productive members of our society. As Sheriff, if we can assist in creating those productive members, then our community policing efforts have aided in having a lower crime rate. "
