Something old -- something new -- and they both involve the sheriff.  

Fourteen years ago tomorrow -- July 1st, 2000 -- Steve Prator became Caddo Parish Sheriff. Now, on the 14th anniversary of his doing so, Prator's office is taking on new duties tomorrow. The Caddo Sheriff's Office will now be handling the Caddo Office of Homeland Security and Emergency Preparedness.

The change began several months ago when Bossier City and Parish decided to pull out of the joint Caddo/Bossier Office and go it alone. Prator says his office can take on the additional duties with no additional cost to the Parish or City.
