|Catahoula gets three patrol cars, new K9 deputy|
Congressman Rodney Alexander joined USDA Rural Development Community Programs Director Richard Hoffpauir in Harrisonburg Tuesday to present the keys for three new patrol vehicles to Sheriff James Kelly and meet Catahoula's newest K9 Deputy, Max.
A $50,000 USDA Rural Development grant was awarded to the Catahoula Parish Law Enforcement District in April 2008 for the patrol cars and Max.
"This was a matching grant and we are greatly appreciative," said Sheriff James Kelly. "Max is trained in narcotics detection and apprehension. And he bites."
His handler, Deputy Robert Wiley, has received training for the work, said Kelly.
"Rural areas face many challenges in law enforcement -- and one big challenge is the lack of funding for needed equipment," said Hoffpauir. "USDA Rural Development helps rural law enforcement agencies meet that challenge."
The grant funds for the three patrol cars and K9 were awarded through USDA Rural Development's Community Facilities Program. This program offers grants, loans, and loan guarantees to public entities, such as municipalities, parishes, and special purpose districts, as well as to non-profit corporations and tribal governments, to develop essential community facilities in rural areas and towns of up to 20,000 in population.
Deputies Wiley, Paul Jackson, and Cedric Martin were on hand during ceremonies to take possession of the new vehicles.
