The Louisiana Sheriffs’ and Deputies’ Political Action Committee conducted a press conference on Friday, April 11, 2014 at 11:00 a.m. at the Petroleum Club at 416 Travis Street, #1500, Shreveport, LA 71101 to announce the official endorsement of Judge Scott Crichton for District 2, according to the Louisiana Sheriffs’ Association’s Political Action Committee Chairman, West Baton Rouge Parish Sheriff Mike Cazes.
In issuing the endorsement, Sheriff Cazes said, “Judge Crichton’s record serving for 24 years as judge in Caddo parish, and his history of community service through his creation of relevant public safety education programs are testaments to his character and integrity, and his commitment to the principles of good law enforcement. The Louisiana Sheriffs’ Political Action Committee and the eleven sheriffs of District 2 are proud to endorse Judge Crichton for Supreme Court Justice.”
The Louisiana Sheriffs’ Association is a bipartisan organization, composed of Louisiana’s 64 sheriffs and nearly 14,000 deputy sheriffs, established to represent Louisiana’s chief law enforcement officers across the state. The Association’s purpose is to maintain the constitutional authority of the sheriff as chief law enforcement officer, ensure the delivery of first-rate services, and to sponsor legislation that promotes the administration of criminal justice.
