St. John Sheriff Revokes Car Loaner Policy

Jan 16, 2013

St. John the Baptist Parish code enforcement officers no longer will carry badges or drive vehicles borrowed from the Sheriff's Office.

Sheriff Mike Tregre tells The Times-Picayune that he informed parish President Natalie Robottom of the decision to change a standing arrangement with the parish in a discussion earlier this week.

St. John the Baptist Parish has four part-time code enforcement officers, each working about 20 hours per week. They issue citations for violations ranging from high grass to illegal signage and failure to keep up property.
