Mancuso sworn in as president of Louisiana Sheriffs' Association

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.

    Sunny and nice for Thanksgiving!!!Sunny and nice for Thanksgiving!!!

    The next few days will be rather chilly with temperatures below normal for this time of year!  A warming trend begins this weekend, but the weather still looks great for anything outdoors.  Temperatures will fall rapidly this evening with lows by Thursday morning ranging from the upper 20s north of I-10 to the low 40s at the coast.  The wind may not calm entirely and that might keep frost from becoming widespread north of I-10.
