St. Bernard Sheriff’s Office Reserve Division receives donation

The St. Bernard Sheriff’s Office Reserve Division recently received a donation from the Downtown Irish Club for the purchase of a lifesaving vest to be worn by a Reserve deputy while on duty.   

Reserve Division deputies – unpaid, volunteer officers who supplement the department’s police force in specific situations – work during large scale events such as festivals, parades and athletic events throughout the parish, as well as performing extra patrols at local businesses during the busy holiday shopping season.
