On behalf of the men and women of the Saint Martin Parish Sheriff's Office, I welcome you to our website. Whether you are visiting today for information or advice, to make a complaint or simply to find out more about our work, we hope that you find your visit useful and informative.
The Saint Martin Parish Sheriff's Office is a progressive and dynamic, service oriented organization comprised of over 225 personnel. Each of our professional employees is dedicated to making a positive difference within our Saint Martin Parish Communities. At the forefront of our efforts is our philosophy of service first to our community and its citizens who are our most treasured customers.
We believe that your safety and concerns are a partnership between the Sheriff's Office and the citizens of our parish and no matter what we are trying to accomplish, we can do it better through shared thinking. We encourage open communication with our citizens and actively seek their assistance in working toward our number one priority of making St. Martin Parish a safer place so that our constituents and visitors may enjoy a better quality of life.
I encourage you to explore our site and read about our current programs and priorities. It is my desire that through this site you will be better informed about upcoming Sheriff's Office/Community events, community crime trends, and the many services and opportunities that our office can provide.
Some Sheriff's Offices are getting it right more of the time than others. We want to be the type of an organization that gets it right. These are the ones that are investing in systems that actually work, investing in staff that know enough and care enough to help. They are trying to solve problems in order to provide the best of services to each and every one of its citizens. I hope that our website will contribute towards our aim of improving performance by our employees and staff so that you may get the best from your Sheriff's Office. However, if there is something you feel we could do to enhance our operations, please let us know.
Ronald J. Theriot, Sheriff
