St. Helena Parish Partnerships With Crime Stoppers,CEO and Executive Director Jodie Powell and Sheriff Nat Williams signed papers on June 1, 2011 for the partnership of Crime Stoppers of Tangipahoa to join with St. Helena. Sheriff Williams stated that St. Helena has needed its own Crime Stoppers and Tangipahoa finally made that happen. The parishes have been working together for over two years to make this adjoining possible, and now that they have, the sheriff plans to promote the program and let it be known to the citizens of St. Helena Parish. Sheriff Williams and Chief Depputy Pritchett will work in a tight range along with other local law enforcement agencies within the parish to fight against crime and in solving the ones that have occurred. According to Chief Pritchett, he is looking forward to working with Tangipahoa Parish. He said that it’s like deja vu all over again, as he has worked with the Crime Stoppers in the past during his employment with the Tangipahoa Parish law enforcement.
Chief Deputy Chester Pritchett received the Crime Stoppers Criminal Justice Award during the third annual Crime Stoppers Luncheon at Chesterton Square in Ponchatoula, Fridiay, June 17, 2011. He received the award for his commitment to public safety. The luncheon is held as a fund-raiser and to honor the many hard-working law enforcers and media agencies that work together to combat crime.
Pritchett was previously with the Tangipahoa Parish Sheriff’s Office and has been a proponent of Crime Stoppers since 1992, and has been involved in solving numerous murder cases and other related crimes within the parish. This is the first time that St. Helena Parish has had its very own Crime Stoppers Program which is operated by Jodie Powell, CEO and Executive Director
