The event was sponsored by the Deville/Buckeye Neighborhood Watch and featured each candidate giving a 5-minute opening statement about himself and his respective platform.

Following the opening statements, community residents were allowed to ask questions.

"The Rapides Parish Sheriff has an awesome responsibility," Sarah Normand of Deville/Buckeye Neighborhood Watch said. "And we felt like it was important that all the citizens of the Deville Buckeye area had a chance to meet the candidates face to face and know the positions and where they stand."
