Sheriff Greg Champagne was recently honored at a local Awards Banquet held by Crimestoppers.

Champagne was a recipient of the "Law Enforcement Award" which recognized him and his department's post Katrina efforts for serving their community and outstanding participation with Crimestoppers.

Crimestoppers is a non- profit organization which works in cooperation with local law enforcement, media, and the general public to solve and prevent crimes in the parishes of:

- St. Charles.

- Orleans.

- Jefferson.

- St. Bernard.

- St. John.

- St. Tammany.

- Plaquemines.

- St. James.

The program is 22 years old and utilizes a 24- hour anonymous crime tip hot line. Since it's inception, Crimestoppers has assisted law enforcement to solve over 6,000 crimes and has paid out over $800,000 in cash rewards to callers.

"We just wanted to take this opportunity to thank Sheriff Champagne and his staff for doing such an outstanding job in protecting their citizens and property during Katrina.

Crimestoppers is pleased to be affiliated with the St. Charles Parish Sheriff's Department", said Darlene Cusanza, Executive Director for Crimestoppers.
