Ouachita Sheriff’s Deputies Receive Awards

Two Ouachita Parish Sheriff’s Deputies were recently recognized for their work with Keep Louisiana Beautiful and Ouachita Green.

Sgt. Wayne Heckford received the Golden Can Award from Keep Louisiana Beautiful, a state affiliate of the National Keep America Beautiful organization.

The award is presented to a statewide winner each year honoring a public servant who displays a deep commitment to KLB’s mission in their daily work by going above and beyond the call of duty.

Sgt. Heckford is a 30 year veteran of the Ouachita Parish Sheriff’s Office and supervises the Code Enforcement Division, which enforces the litter abatement ordinances in Ouachita Parish.

He was recognized for going above and beyond the call of duty by helping with litter abatement and recycling projects. He has also played a key role in providing support for their Household Hazardous Waste and America Recycles Day events, as well as assisting with stream cleanup projects.

Warden Campbell is a 29 year veteran of OPSO and is currently the Warden at the Ouachita Correctional Center.
