OPSO Santa Patrol

You better watch out I’m telling you why!

The Ouachita Parish Sheriff’s Department SCAT team has once again began their annual “Santa Claus Patrol”. This unique patrol involves members of this unit wearing plain clothes and using unmarked vehicles to frequent retail stores and parking lots that are busy with holiday shoppers. Members of the SCAT team spend hours patrolling and walking through these retail stores targeting shoplifters, robbers and burglars.
