A Caddo Sheriff's Deputy has received a very big honor, and will use her new position to help keep school-aged kids away from drugs and violence.

Deputy LaTienda Pierre Davis was sworn in as the 2016-17 President of the Louisiana D.A.R.E. Officers Association during the group’s annual awards banquet in Alexandria this past Thursday.

A press release from the CPSO details what Davis will have in store for her over the next year.

During her year as President, Davis along with her LDOA Board of Directors will represent the Louisiana D.A.R.E. program, oversee and plan all activities and training for the 26th annual LDOA Training Conference, and oversee other projects involving the association.
