As winter comes to a close and we welcome spring, we at the Washington Parish Sheriff’s Office remember that spring is a great time in our community – a new baseball season begins, spring break is approaching, and graduation draws near for our students. We celebrate these good times in our community.
I want to remind you that with the warmer weather, children may be playing near our parish roads. Please take extra caution and slow down when driving through residential neighborhoods, and remember, children learn by watching us. If you're traveling with a child, please practice good driving habits, including:
- Wear your seat belts.
- Obey speed limits.
- Teach them why it's important to slow near schools and neighborhoods.
- Don't text while driving.
- Make sure children are in the correct car seat.

Thank you for keeping Washington Parish safe. We look forward to the great times that spring will bring!
