Gang enforcement units could patrol the North Fork and other gang hangouts. More coverage could be available by having deputies start their shifts later so they would be available during the night-time hours when trouble is more likely to occur.
“In the past, we have assigned a school officer to Three Rivers when school is out,” Boudreaux said. “We can look into doing that again this year.”
Boudreaux also said he could request some of the Transient Occupancy Tax (TOT) generated by all those short-term rentals to fund assigning another officer.
