Senator believes public endangered by early inmate release

United States Sen. John Kennedy has raised concerns about the Louisiana Department of Corrections’ ability to protect the public after the state’s district attorneys indicated that nearly a quarter of inmates released early through Gov. Edwards’ Louisiana Justice Reinvestment Act have been arrested again. At least two of the rearrested inmates are behind bars on murder charges.

Inmates were released without the probation and parole boards evaluating the risk to public safety. In Ascension, Assumption and St. James parishes, one in three inmates who were released early have already reoffended.

New training facility provides safer Sabine

By Daniel Jones

A building is burning outside of Zwolle, but it isn’t what you’d think.

July 12 was a momentous day for the North Sabine Fire District and Sabine Parish as a whole, as the Fire District Regional Training Facility was dedicated with an open house and brief demonstration of how fire fighters will train at the new complex.

“This represents a huge expansion of fire protection training within Sabine and the surrounding areas,” said Nick Spann, chief of the North Sabine Fire District. “We will be able to run a variety of scenarios over and over, which will teach our local fire fighters and first responders how to respond to different situations through muscle memory. It’s just like basketball practice, the more you practice the better you become at the task.”
