ST. CHARLES PARISH, LA (WVUE) -

St Charles parish Sheriff's Office along with the St. Charles Parish School Board have created a program in conjunction with Offender Watch Initiative in an effort to prevent sexual abuse against residents. 

Parents and guardians of children in St Charles Parish Public Schools will receive a brochure detailing specifics of the T.A.S.K. Program.

Parents are being asked to review the content of the brochure with their children, and have an honest discussion with their children regarding the dangerous reality of sexual abuse and the preventative measures that can be taken to prevent it, according to the sheriff. 

 The (T.A.S.K.) program is a three step email registration process.  

According to the release, upon completion of the program, and with parental assistance, children will print a map of their local area, sign it, and submit it to their teacher.

Once the assignment has been completed, children will receive a safety prize from a local sponsor, which is Adventure Quest Laser Tag.  

Adventure Quest Laser Tag will be providing children with a choice of a FREE Laser Tag or Bumpber Car Ride or Putt-Putt Game, according to the news release issued by the sheriff.   

If parents think they may have already signed up, they can perform a search on offenderwatch.com and print map of sex offenders in their area to submit back to school for their child to receive a prize.

In St Charles Parish there are 78 published sex offenders. Do You Know Your Neighborhood? We want parents to be informed in their neighborhood. The process is fast, easy and free at www.offenderwatch.com

“We believe that keeping families informed of sex offenders moving into their neighborhood is an important part of keeping our citizens safe and protected from potential threats to their families. This partnership allows us to do that in an easy, free way,” said Sheriff Champagne.

    After Further Review: Sloppy wins still count for Saints

    I usually leave a Saints game with an overall theme or feeling about what I just observed on the field. It typically jumps out at me right away and this column is written. But after Sunday I was left with kind of a blah emotion. Their effort against the Jets was kind of weird. It certainly wasn’t an overly impressive victory to celebrate, but nonetheless, a win in the NFL by double digits is nothing they have to apologize for. Dodging a bullet may be the more accurate descript...

    Juan's World: Saints ground Jets, look to Falcons rematch

    Welcome in to Juan's World and as you know, this blog that I do is strictly an opinion piece with a few facts sprinkled in here and there. So, with that in mind, I'm under the opinion that the Saints should've been 'expected' to look past the Jets to next weeks rematch with the Falcons. How could they not look ahead to Atlanta coming to the dome next Sunday. And before you go all 'One Game at a Time' on me, think for a second. You're supposed to beat the Jets, who came in 5-8 and wi...
