Sheriff congratulates NSU Criminal Justice graduates


Two Lafourche Parish Sheriff’s Office employees were among the first group of Criminal Justice degree graduates at Nicholls State University. Captain Lafate Day and Lieutenant Michael Beck Jr. each graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in Criminal Justice on Saturday.

Nicholls State University recently instituted a Bachelor’s degree program in Criminal Justice. Captain Day, Director of the Lafourche Sheriff’s Regional P.O.S.T. Training Academy, and Lieutenant Michael Beck, a patrol shift supervisor, were among the first class to graduate in the new program. The two did so while taking advantage of the education benefits afforded to all Lafourche Parish Sheriff’s Office employees.

“The people of Lafourche Parish deserve the best-educated officers we can provide them, and I am committed to supporting their goals of achieving college degrees,” said Sheriff Webre.
