To better serve our public, Sheriff Randy Smith realigned the criminal patrol districts for the parish and moved the District III Headquarters from Collins Boulevard in Covington to south of I-12 at 784 Asbury Drive in Mandeville. The new location allows for improved response times, centralized manpower and increased visibility south of Interstate 12.

The change was made in response to the rapid population growth in west St. Tammany and the increase in traffic on the north and south arteries on that side of the parish.
