Ouachita Parish Sheriff’s Office Mourns the Loss of Area Officers

Sheriff Jay Russell and Deputies of the Ouachita Parish Sheriff’s Office mourn the loss of two veteran Law Enforcement Officers in our area.

Louisiana State Police Master Trooper Chris Hollingsworth passed away September 22, 2020.  Trooper Hollingsworth was a Ouachita Parish Sheriff’s Deputy before beginning career with the Louisiana State Police.  For those of us that knew and worked with him, he will always be remembered for his sincere dedication to his profession and how he always greeted you with that big smile and compassionate attitude.

Richland Parish Sheriff’s Office Captain Randy Vallot passed away September 23, 2020.  Captain Vallot was an officer with ULM PD before joining the Richland Parish Sheriff’s Office.

Friends and fellow officers will tell you how much he loved being a law enforcement officer; how he cared for people and the positive influence he had on anyone he came in contact with.

Please join us in remembering the families of these two men and members of the Louisiana State Police and the Richland Parish Sheriff’s Office in your prayers.  Both were respected, dedicated law enforcement officers and will be missed.

Blessed Are the Peacemakers, For They Shall Be Called the Children of God
