A donation by the Port Allen City Council tripled the fleet of the Rosedale Police Department in Iberville parish.
Rosedale presently operates as a one-vehicle department, Mayor of Rosedale Riley Blanchet said in an email Mayor of Port Allen Richard Lee read at the Wednesday, April 11 meeting.
Two 2008 Crown Victoria fleet vehicles were donated by Port Allen to the Rosedale Police Department with the City Council’s approval at Wednesday’s meeting.
“The addition of these vehicles will certainly improve the overall safety and service of the citizens of Rosedale,” Mayor of Rosedale Riley Blanchet said in an email Mayor of Port Allen Richard Lee read at Wednesday’s meeting.
Police Chief Mike Sparks attended the meeting and thanked the Council for the donation as well.
