Annual Conference Welcome Letter

2024 Louisiana Sheriffs’ Association (LSA) Sheriffs’ and Wardens’ Training Conference Welcome Letter


Welcome to Destin, Florida and to the 2024 Louisiana Sheriffs’ and Wardens’ Annual Training Conference and Exhibition!  

This year’s training sessions and meetings have been created to provide both novice and experienced attendees with the most up-to-date information available on pertinent law enforcement topics. As part of the Association’s Louisiana Sheriffs’ Executive Management Institute, we are offering targeted training sessions on current topics such as Commission on Peace Officer Standards and Training, human trafficking, timely legal and legislative updates, and a debrief on the Nashville school shooting. 

The Louisiana Sheriffs’ Association has worked hard to provide you not only with these valuable training sessions and business meetings, but also with fun leisure activities for everyone attending. 120+ exhibitors will be ready to share the latest in public safety and technology products and services.  Our conference would not be possible without these exhibitors, including our more than 25 corporate sponsors.  We encourage you to find some time during your stay to visit as many exhibitors as possible.

 If you need anything during your stay, please let us know.  We will be more than happy to help.  Most importantly, enjoy the conference!
