Livingston Sheriff Jason Ard elected Sergeant-at-Arms for La. Sheriff's Association
LIVINGSTON PARISH - Livingston Parish Sheriff Jason Ard has been elected to serve on the executive committee of the Louisiana Sheriff's Association.
The sheriff's office announced Tuesday that Ard was elected to serve as Sergeant-at-Arms for the association, representing sheriff's offices across the state. The sheriff will serve in the leadership position alongside East Baton Rouge Sheriff Sid Gautreaux, who serves as the president of the LSA.
"Those who are a part of the LSA helped me, my deputies and my parish following the historic flood of August 2016," Sheriff Ard said. "I saw this position as an opportunity to give back to all those who helped when we needed it most. It is an honor and a privilege to serve and protect."
Sheriff Ard was sworn into his new role Tuesday afternoon. He will continue to serve as the sheriff of Livingston Parish.
