The Knights of Nemesis’ 12th annual Carnival parade held February 18 in Chalmette under beautiful skies was a success, with no major incidents thanks to the men and women of the St. Bernard Sheriff’s Office who keep our streets safe.
Sheriff James Pohlmann led the parade, as well as several units from the Sheriff’s Office, and officers aboard the Mobile Emergency Operations Center regularly posted parade location updates on the Sheriff’s Office Facebook and Twitter accounts. Other units from the Sheriff’s Office that participated in the parade included officers with the Traffic Division, the Drug Abuse Resistance Education anti drug program and McGruff the Crime Dog.
