Sheriff issues non-lethal devices

St. Landry Parish Sheriff Bobby Guidroz announced his deputies are now certified in the use of three non-lethal devices.
The training has taken place over the past month, he said in a news release.
“I saw a need to reallocate funds and grants to purchase additional options that are now available and issue them to my deputies for a less-than-lethal way to resolve a conflict,” he said.
