More than 1,000 elected officials and their wives/significant others are expected to attend the three-day 2020 Louisiana Police Jury Association annual convention scheduled to kick off Wednesday, Feb. 12 at the Shreveport Convention Center.
Glenn Benton of Haughton, outgoing 2019 president of the LPJA, will welcome jury members from across the state Wednesday. Benton is a member of the Bossier Parish Police Jury.
“It’s been a great experience for me,” Benton said. “I think we’ve seen some significant accomplishments in 2019 for police juries across the state.”
Wednesday’s opening day will feature exhibits by approximately 100 businesses and individuals while Thursday will be a day of education and break-out sessions for attending jury members. An evening banquet will close the day’s activities, Benton said.
Friday’s final day will feature a business session, including election of association officers for the coming year. Gov. John Bel Edwards will deliver the keynote address to close the convention.
