Juvenile Programs Division


Sgt. Keysla Perrilloux has been with the St. Charles Parish Sheriff’s Office for 18 years. She said after 11 years of working in corrections she was thrilled when the opportunity arose to move into the juvenile division program.

“I get to show police officers in a different light,” she said. “That’s our main thing … programs to interact with kids and parents and to work with kids in different aspects.”


Perrilloux said the juvenile programs division works with kids from 5 to 17 years old.

“It’s just so rewarding,’ she said. “We go into a school and the kids will just run up to you and give you a hug.”

Perrilloux said she and others in the division run existing programs, but that they have also had the opportunity to start new ventures such as the S.C.S.O. Community Garden Venturing Crew Girl’s Camp.

Amanda Pertuis, SCPSO’s public information officer, said Perrilloux and Lieutenant Roanne Sampson collaborate to lead a slew of great programs that focus on the youth of St. Charles Parish.

“They have built positive relationships and created trust with the youth in our parish and that helps to not only reduce crime but also provides the youth with much needed life skills,” Pertuis said. “Roanne and Keysla also collaborate with community partners to offer a variety of programs and services. They make a difference in the life of every juvenile they meet.”
