Three West Feliciana Middle School eighth-graders received a tour of the West Feliciana Parish Sheriff’s Office in the fall, when they shadowed several deputies at work.

Daniel Atkins, Jaydon Davis and Tyrese Wilcox toured facilities, asked questions of deputies, observed courtroom proceedings, checked out police cruiser and helicopter equipment and even received a lesson on lifting fingerprints at the Criminal Investigations Division, while learning a bit about what it takes to be a law enforcement officer.
