The one who at one time was the youngest sheriff in the state of Louisiana is now the longest tenured sheriff in Jackson Parish history. On July 1st, Sheriff Andy Brown began his fifth term in office at a swearing in ceremony that was administered by Clerk of Court Laura H. Culpepper with his wife Suzanne standing by his side.
“I am thankful that you, the people, have trusted me to lead as Sheriff,” said Brown. “I could not do this job on my own and I want to thank all the men and women who work at the Sheriff’s Office for the great job that they do.”
“I also want to thank my wife and family for the support they give me. Most importantly, I thank God for allowing me the opportunity to be where I am today, and showing me the direction I need to go to lead this great department. I am truly humbled to be your Sheriff and look forward to serving you for the next four years as Sheriff.”
Also sworn in were members of the Jackson Parish Sheriff’s Office and the Jackson Parish Correctional Center.
