Seniors participate in Crime Expo

VIDEO: Livingston crime expo helps seniors feel safe

DENHAM SPRINGS, LA (WAFB) - Seniors in Livingston Parish participated in the 20th Annual Crime Expo on Thursday.

Hundreds of seniors gathered at the Abundant Life Church in Denham Springs to learn how area law enforcement is working for them. The expo also featured displays and booths from different organizations aimed at helping seniors with whatever care they might need.

Denham Springs Mayor Gerard Landry said it is the perfect example of a commitment to the senior community.

"Not only the city, but the parish and the state," Landry said. "This group of folks took care of us and raised us and now it's our turn to pay them back and make sure we do what we can to make their years comfortable."

A representative from Lt. Gov. Billy Nungesser's office served as the keynote speaker.
