The St. John Parish Sheriff’s Office is proud to partner with RTC for enhancement and continued support of technology and equipment at the new Lloyd B. Johnson Law Enforcement Training Center in LaPlace.
The company has committed to platinum sponsorship, $5,000 per year for four years, to meet the training and event needs for our business, community and law enforcement partners.
On hand for signing of the commitment agreement are Sheriff Mike Tregre, Katie Klibert, RTC community relations and business development manager; and Captain Chip Wale, training center commander.
“At RTC, we’re proud to continue growing our partnership with St. John the Baptist Parish Sheriff’s Office,” Klibert said. “The Lloyd B. Johnson Law Enforcement Training Center is a wonderful opportunity to have a centralized location for the continuing education and training of our parish’s law enforcement officers. As much a resource for our law enforcement partners as it is for our community, the center also creates a space where residents can receive training while putting names and faces to those who protect us.”
The center opened last month at 947 Cambridge Drive in LaPlace. The center, which is named in honor of Johnson who served as St. John Parish Sheriff for 20 years, will enhance safety, address professional training needs of officers, offer community education, increase interaction between citizens and law enforcement, and boost police presence in the community. Public range dates, concealed carry classes, women’s self defense classes, crime prevention programs and hunter education are among programs being planned.
