DeSoto Parish Sheriff’s Office starts “Bringing Joye” Program

In honor of World Down Syndrome Day, Sheriff Jayson Richardson has decided that it would be a great day to announce his newest initiative, the DeSoto Parish Sheriff’s Office “Bringing Joye” Program.

This initiative is inspired by his Aunt Joye Malone of Logansport. She is also known as Logansport Tigers biggest fan. In previous years, Sheriff Richardson has been an active supporter of the local charity Circle of Hope.

Recently, the Sheriff’s Office and Circle of Hope have planned events and brought our special needs community together for games, dancing, and pizza parties.

Partnerships have been formed with the DeSoto Parish School system that have allowed special needs students from each school to come together at DeSoto Parish Sheriff’s Training Facility for these activities.

We look forward to sharing these experiences with the public in the future.

If you would like to volunteer to help with an event please contact Holly Jones at 318-872-3956.
