At the February 20th City Council Meeting we honored someone that was long overdue for this recognition, Mr. LP Bourque has supported our Police Dept for years and has never been too busy to give us a tow. He operates a successful business that is driven by his tireless work ethic and a demand to provide professional service.

On behalf of SMPD Officers, past & present, THANK YOU Mr. LP!

February 17, 2017

Over the last several months, within the city limits of St. Martinville, there have been over 20 incidents of property damage caused by unknown persons shooting BB guns randomly at resident’s homes and cars.
This irresponsible behavior has caused our neighbors to spend their hard earned money on repairs and has them uncomfortable at their own home fearing when the next incident will occur.
This is completely unacceptable and we are reaching out to the community for assistance in apprehending the person(s) committing these crimes.

If you have information, please call St. Martin Crime Stoppers at: 337-441-3030.

All callers will remain anonymous and are eligible to receive a cash reward if the information leads to an arrest.

Thanks for your efforts in keeping OUR City safe,

Calder Hebert,
Chief

Thanks to the wonderful staff at the Early Head Start for allowing us to spend Tuesday morning reading with the students. This positive environment that surrounds the kids is so important at such an impressionable age.

Please keep up the great work with our little ones!

I would like to thank Mayor Thomas Nelson and the SM City Council for their support of SMPD. The majority of our patrol units had served their better days and repairs costs became unacceptable. With the addition of five new units, we will be utilizing tax payer dollars in a more responsible manner.

Thanks again to Mayor Nelson for working with me to improve SMPD!

During trying times like we are facing with this flood, the true characteristics of people tend to show: positive or negative.
We receive support from residents and business owners and we really appreciate all of it.

One local business owner and lifetime resident of St Martinville helped SMPD without hesitation in a time of need. We took on some water Saturday evening and didn't have the tools necessary to remove the water. Although the hardware store was closed, Mr. Lowell Gauthier (owner of Joyce's Supermarket) made sure we were equipped to prevent permanent damage to the police station. We worked through the night and today our station looks like we didn't receive a drop of water.

In addition to equipping us with supplies, he insisted on providing lunch on Sunday to the SMPD Staff. BTW, this is not the first time he has supported SMPD.

Mr. Lowell has always helped his community through countless fundraisers and very likely many things that I'm unaware of:

I just want to publicly recognize his generosity for all in SM,
Thanks Mr. Lowell!

The curfew that was set in place due to the flooding waters has been lifted.

This doesn't mean that there are no longer areas of high water on the roadways or overflowing in some roadside ditches.

Please use extreme caution when traveling.

Be safe and courteous!

There will be a curfew from Saturday night beginning at 8 P.M. until Sunday morning at
6 A.M. in the City of St. Martinville and the entire Parish of St. Martin.

For the safety and protection of all, we ask that this curfew be observed by all citizens.

I'm grateful that we have new flags on display at SMPD and it is due to thoughtful citizens wanting to support Law Enforcement.

Thanks to Ronald and Pamela Rayburn, SMPD now proudly displays both the US and Louisiana flags.
In addition to the flags and new hardware, this patriotic couple also installed a solar powered light that will allow our flags to fly 24/7.

These acts of kindness and support are appreciated anytime, but are especially encouraging for all of us in BLUE during the trying times that we are experiencing.

CONGRATS to Officer Doug Simon!
He has earned and been awarded as Officer of the Quarter

Doug has taken pride in assuring order at the ELC campus where the youngest of our school kids are transported daily.

He isn't just a cop car with lights on, Doug is active with both school staff and the public alike.

He displays a smile while being part of the community, but gets firm when the situation calls for enforcement.

Although Officer Simon is considered part-time status, his contribution to SMPD is 24/7. Doug is always just a phone call away to assist and walks into the station with a smile.

In the early evening hours of Sunday, December 20, my parents were on their way back home to St. Martinville from Lafayette. As they crossed into the city limits, my father realized that he was unable to stop his vehicle due to mechanical issues. My mother immediately called 911 and notified the dispatcher of the problem. Two officers, Officer Peters and Officer Johnson quickly responded and were able to remove traffic and open the approaching intersections. I wish for it to be noted that Officer Peters and Officer Johnson went above and beyond the call of duty and their actions most likely saved citizens and my parents from tragic accidents.

Officer Peters and Johnson, I greatly applaud your efforts. Job well done!

RE: November 21, 2015 Election ballot-Recreation Bond Renewal

The Main Street Association would like to invite you to attend a meeting on Monday November 9, 2015 at 6pm at City Hall in St. Martinville. The meeting will be held in the Council Chambers.

The purpose of the meeting is to discuss the upcoming recreational bond renewal tax on the Nov. 21 ballot. We encourage you to attend to help support the bond tax as it will allow the City to renovate and construct much needed recreational facilities throughout the City.

Recreation Projects Include: Magnolia Park, Adam Carlson Park, St. Martinville Festival Grounds, St. Martinville City Pool, La Maison Duchamp

Please distribute to your friends and family that live in the SM area, to include those that don't have FB accounts.

Your elected officials (City/State) and I met with DOTD months ago when this project was first announced. We made them aware of the strong public opposition to reducing the number of travel lanes and our desire to hold a public meeting so all voices could be heard. A few days prior to the scheduled Public Meeting, DOTD advised that the overlay portion of the project would move forward, however the lane reduction portion would be eliminated.

So YES, we do have construction for an overlay. And NO, we will not have a reduction in total lanes. According to DOTD, when construction is complete, SM will have a newly overlaid roadway with the existing lanes of travel.

As with any road construction project, daily travel will be frustrating. Please have patience and be courteous to your neighbors on the road.

Trick or Treating has been moved to Friday (6PM to 8PM) in anticipation of heavy rains. Please make your friends and family aware of this change.

Please drive extra careful for the safety of OUR kids enjoying the holiday.

Today's edition of Beyond The Badge features Halloween safety tips.

We have also posted some additional information below to assist you in making your Halloween a safe one.

Trick or treating will be held from 6:00 p.m. - 8:00 p.m. Friday, October 30th.
If you have any requests for future topics that you would like to see featured on a "Beyond The Badge" segment, please send me a Facebook message or email me at [email protected]

Halloween Safety Tips

Please make sure that children are accompanied by an adult while trick or treating.

Please make sure your child's costume fits well and is not dragging on the ground to prevent falls.

Make sure that your child's costume is made with reflective fabric or add reflective tape so they can be visible to motorists.

If your child is wearing a mask, please make sure it is not impairing their vision. Opt for non-toxic face paint instead.

Use glow sticks or flashlights.

Motorists...please drive slowly and safely and watch for trick or treaters.

Make sure pets are secured so that they don't run out the door when you answer the door for trick or treaters.

Only trick or treat at houses that are well lit and stay in neighborhoods that are familiar.

Instruct your children to never enter a stranger's home or vehicle.

Lastly, please inspect your children's candy before you allow them to consume it.

Have a safe and happy Halloween!

I would like to commend Officer Cavan Zacharie for the professional way he handled our car burglary on Tuesday evening, Dec. 31. His kindness, compassion and knowledge of phone tracking was exemplary. He found our phone!!! And, my husband was able to find a purse and wallet, stolen from the car, the next day (in the daylight) in a nearby trash can. We will, forever, be thankful for your help....good luck to you and be careful out there!!!

Before I get my panties in a wad, who is the CURRENT Chief of Police and is he permanent or an interim? I may not care for cops, but I want to make sure my anger and frustration is justified..
