Sheriff Mike Tregre and a few of his fellow officers were excited to spend the morning, talking with students during St. John Parish’s College and Career Fair on October 11, 2023 at 321 Events LLC in LaPlace.

Officers with 911, Patrol, Training, SWAT, and Human Resources captured the attention of several of the students from West St. John High, St. John STEM, East St. John High and Gateway as they talked about their respective careers. They spoke about the nature of their work, working conditions, training, salaries, and related occupations.

The officers also were available to answer students’ questions so that they could get a better understanding of law enforcement and public service.

The officers agreed it was a great morning with these young people, and they were grateful to the school system for the invitation to talk at College and Career Day.
