LAKE CHARLES, LA (KPLC) -

Calcasieu Parish Sheriff Tony Mancuso was sworn in as president of the Louisiana Sheriffs' Association in a Wednesday ceremony.

Mancuso's tenure will take effect on July 1, according to Michael Ranatza, executive director of the association. 

Mancuso said he was honored to assume the new role. He has served in law enforcement in Calcasieu for nearly three decades.

"I look forward to the challenge and the opportunity to make a difference in law enforcement throughout our state as president of the Louisiana Sheriffs' Association," Mancuso said.

Mancuso began his career at the department as a deputy. He later served as city marshal and then became sheriff. He is in his third term.

The Louisiana Sheriffs' Association is a bipartisan organization, composed of Louisiana's 64 sheriffs and nearly 14,000 deputy sheriffs, established to represent Louisiana's chief law enforcement officers across the state.
