St. Charles Parish sheriff’s Cpl. Burt Hazeltine, who was severely wounded in an ambush April 16 while directing school traffic in Paradis, recently received financial support for his recovery through the Plaquemines Parish Sheriff’s Office. Hazeltine has returned to work as a member of the training staff.
Plaquemines Sheriff Lonnie Greco presented Hazeltine with $600 contributed by members of his staff during a recent training session. The money will go toward Corporal Hazeltine’s recovery.
Commander Eric Becnel, director of training for the PPSO, presented Hazeltine with a $100 check on behalf of Calibre Press, which specializes in training law enforcement professionals.
