RAPIDES PARISH, La. (KALB News Channel 5) Sheriff William Earl Hilton announces La. Sheriff's Association Honorary Membership Program. 

Next week, the Louisiana Sheriff's Association will begin sending out membership applications for a community-based program to inform citizens about crime prevention.

Rapides Parish Sheriff William Earl Hilton said in a release he wanted to inform the public that the applications being sent through the mail are not a scam. According to Sheriff Hilton, the amount of financial fraud throughout Cenla last year might cause concern for some community members.

Sheriff Hilton said goals of The Louisiana Sheriff's Association Honorary Membership Program include:

- Providing training for the Sheriff's Neighborhood Watch Program

- Funding Louisiana Sheriff's Educational Scholarship Program 

- Helping keep citizens informed through the Sheriff's Sex Offender Database

- Building stronger public-private law enforcement partnerships

"Through programs like the Honorary Membership, we will continue to provide the best law enforcement possible," Sheriff Hilton said. "We encourage everyone receiving a membership application in the mail to consider joining forces with us by becoming an Honorary Member."

Sheriff Hilton said he also wanted to remind the public that The Louisiana Sheriffs' Honorary Membership Program (LSHMP) never raises funds through telephone solicitations. The Louisiana Sheriff's Association asked if you are contacted through a phone call by someone claiming to represent the programs, to report the call at (225) 383-2871. 

Membership application are available by contacting the Louisiana Sheriff's Association at (225) 383-2871 or online at
