Sheriff’s Office to hold community meeting April 17

The Orleans Parish Sheriff’s Office will host a community meeting 6 p.m. Tuesday April 17 in Rms. 131-135 of the Professional Schools and Sciences Building at Dillard University.

Sheriff Marlin N. Gusman and Compliance Director Darnley Hodge will provide updates on accomplishments and challenges at the Orleans Justice Center during the first quarter of 2018 at a community meeting. These quarterly meetings are a part of the federal consent decree.

Other OPSO officials will be on hand to discuss jail operations in detail. The meeting will include a question-and-answer period.

Hodge has served as compliance director since earlier this year after the resignation of Gary Maynard in January. A court-appointed compliance director has overseen the daily operations at the jail since fall of 2016.
