CPSO deploying assets and deputies to Plaquemines Parish

CALCASIEU PARISH, LA (KPLC) - In the wake of Hurricane Isaac's destruction in Southeast Louisiana, 20 Sheriff's deputies and tons of assets are deploying to Plaquemines Parish to assist in any way they can.

Calcasieu Parish Sheriff Tony Mancuso says the number of deputies and assets that are going will not hurt law enforcement here in Calcasieu.

"We had a lot of help during Hurricane Rita, now it's our turn to help," Mancuso said.

The deputies will be on a five-day deployment, then they'll reassess to see if they're still needed.
