LPDC group commended

For quite some time, local government officials have been concerned about the deficit at the Lincoln Parish Detention Center.
They all agree that criminals have to stay off the street, but keeping them imprisoned has cost the parish more than it had to spend on them. So, late in 2012, a jail study committee was formed to attempt to deal with the issue.

Vintage Patton, to be sure.
But when instructed to go through a plethora of drills and tests on the school’s annual “Pro Day,” he was as serious and focused as a NASA engineer studying soil samples from Mars.
