    EAST BATON ROUGE - The East Baton Rouge Parish Sheriff’s Office announced Tuesday it will hire eight new deputies with a more-than-million-dollar grant it received from the U.S. Department of Justice Office of Community Oriented Policing Services. In addition to the new deputies, the $1.25 million will allow the office to create an Emergency Services Unit, which, among other things, will provide a rapid response to life-threatening incidents and other emergency situations, Sheriff Sid Gautreaux said at a news conference. The unit will be composed of eight deputies, two of whom have already been selected, Gautreaux said. The remaining six deputies will be chosen within the next few months. The money the Sheriff’s Office received from the federal grant will be used to fill the eight vacancies created by the formation of the Emergency Services Unit, or ESU, the sheriff said. The money will pay the deputies’ salaries for three years. At that time, the sheriff said, he will evaluate the effectiveness of the ESU and the office’s budget to determine whether to keep the unit intact. “This funding will give us the support to continue to put more feet on the streets of the parish,” Gautreaux said. “I’m so pleased that we were awarded this grant so that we can continue to make the parish safer.”

    And when the grant runs out...Who is gonna pay salaries then.. Grant positions are very sticky and can end up being a bad deal.
    The sheep generally do not like the sheepdog. He looks a lot like the wolf. He has fangs and the capacity for violence. The difference, though, is that the sheepdog must not, cannot and will not ever harm the sheep. Any sheepdog who intentionally harms the lowliest little lamb will be punished and removed.

      Very rarely in Louisiana do people get laid off after the grant money runs out.
