Jefferson Parish Sheriff Newell Normand is pleased to announce his participation in the Louisiana Sheriffs Honorary Membership Program. Sheriff Normand, in response to the ever increasing number of citizens wanting to assist law enforcement officials, is inviting Jefferson Parish citizens to become Honorary Members of the Louisiana Sheriffs Honorary Membership Program.
The Honorary Membership Program was formed to provide citizens with an opportunity to lend their support to local law enforcement officers who protect their lives and property.

Membership appeals have already been sent through the mail. Individuals choosing to join the membership program can do so for as little as $20, while families and businesses can show their support with a $35 contribution. Funds will provide crucial technical resources, training and legislative support on key criminal issues. There will be no phone solicitation for this program. The only other notice you may receive will be the LSA’s membership renewal.
The LSA also awards scholarships to graduating high school students where participating Sheriffs are members of the Louisiana Sheriffs’ Honorary Membership Program. The goal of the program is to provide assistance to worthy Louisiana students in furthering their education and training with resources made available through the program. Please visit the Louisiana Sheriffs Association at to learn more. In case you are wondering, a percentage of the membership fees will be returned to the Jefferson Parish Sheriff’s Office. Sheriff Normand has chosen to earmark these funds to the JPSO Band of Excellence.
