Rougarou the Rescue Dog Joins Caddo Canine Unit
Sheriff's Office Rescues New K-9 Recruit


A recent story about the Caddo Parish Sheriff's Office (CPSO) recruiting a rescue from the Humane Society to join its K-9 unit is not only a heartwarming story of a second chance for a Labrador retriever named Rougarou getting a new "leash" on life but a reminder that it pays to seek out innovative and sensible solutions.

According to the Caddo Sheriff’s Office, it currently has four other K-9s. All are dual-purpose dogs trained in narcotics and patrol work, and all are European imports purchased from U.S. K-9 vendors. They range in price from $11,000 for a single purpose dog to $15,500 for a dual-purpose dog. The cost of Rougarou? $0.

Student brings it!? Even Breakfast...

A Shreveport area high school senior and honor student who serves as president of his high school robotics team spent some time shadowing our executive vice president, David R. Doyal. After spending a day at the IES corporate office and getting to attend a meeting with our Siemens partner and Louisiana Tech (before officially becoming a student there), he showed up the next morning with breakfast for the entire office to show his appreciation!
