Sheriff Updates Chamber Members during Coffee & Commerce
Chamber members met together last week at Away Down South to network and receive an update from New WF Sheriff Brian Spillman.
Spillman shared his vision for the WF Sheriff's Department. He explained that there has been a smooth transition from Sheriff Austin Daniel to himself. Covid restrictions have held up some changes, but when possible he is ready to implement new community programs such as a Citizens' Academy said Spillman. "This program (utilized by other departments around the country) would help train citizens in what to watch for an/or report if they witness a crime. It also helps create community partnerships by exposing citizens to the inner workings and daily activities of the Sheriff's office."
Spillman also updated the Chamber on pandemic restrictions that are in place within the state and how our parish is in-acting them. Spillman encouraged all business owners to clearly post their stores' and businesses' policies during this time and let his department know if there are any issues with customers not following their store's policy.
