Jeff Davis Parish officials honored fallen law enforcement officers on May 17, in coordination with Police week.

Portions of Highway 90 have been renamed to honor Deputies Claude Guillory, officer Burton Leblanc and Deputy James Phillips.

The ceremony took place right outside of the DOTD office in Jennings where Sheriff Ivy Woods presented the families of the fallen officers with a replica of the memorial signs.
