Louisiana State Police Troop A will host its 3rd Annual “Troop A Day” Sunday, Nov.14, from 12 p.m. - 4 p.m.

This will be a fun-filled, family-oriented, health and safety awareness event provided free of charge to the public.

The event will be held at the Blue Bayou Waterpark overflow parking lot on the corner of Highland Road and Interstate 10. There will be free food and drinks, live music, and plenty of activities for kids of all ages.

Troopers say that each year the event has grown with the help of sponsors and partners throughout the Greater Baton Rouge Area.

Troop A has partnered with local and state agencies to bring the health and safety message to people of all ages, ranging from car seat safety to elderly affairs. Health screenings, cancer awareness information, fire hazard houses, helicopters, disaster recovery information, ladder trucks, patrol boats, and interactive children’s games are just some of the many activities that will be offered.

“With the help of our sponsors and partners, we are thrilled to be able to bring the lifesaving information needed to make the Greater Baton Rouge community a safer place,” said Captain Frank Ducote, Troop A Commander.

“We encourage the public to come out, enjoy a day with the family, and take advantage of this free event and valuable information,” Ducote added.
