We serve all community members within our 8-parish service area.
The support of the police juries in each of these 8 parishes is crucial to our success. Many of these police juries nominate a Trailblazer R C & D Board of Directors member, also. The links below provide access to the websites of the police juries which are so crucial to our success.
