Lafayette PD and Marshal's Office talk future community outreach plans

Lafayette PD and City Marshal Office meeting
Posted at 9:52 PM, Jan 25, 2021

On Monday, the Lafayette Police Department and Lafayette City Marshal's Office came together to talk about community outreach.

The Lafayette Police Chief Glover and LPD staff, members of the Lafayette Police Community Relations Committee, and LPSO deputies, joined forces with Marshal Reggie Thomas to discuss future plans for agencies working together. At the meeting, they focused on community policing and building trust within communities they serve.

One main event in the works, neighborhood walks. Lafayette Police started the walks and they say they are looking forward to adding the marshal's office to the program.

"Our community walks are very important. It's something that we started at the Lafayette Police Department and it's something that we're gonna continue throughout the
neighborhoods. We're gonna hit the ground running with both agencies and of course we look forward to working with the marshal's office again throughout the city and just
getting back into touching bases with our neighbors and knowing what we need to do in the community," Sr. Cpl. Bridgette Dugas with the Lafayette Police Department said.

Several other projects are also in the works.
