The Caddo/Bossier Domestic Violence Task Force will host the 15th Annual Trey Hutchison Awards Banquet on Friday, Oct. 5, from 11:15 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Ernest’s Orleans Restaurant, 1601 Spring St., Shreveport.
This event honors the memory of Bossier City Police Officer Trey Hutchison who was slain in August 2004 while responding to a domestic violence call.
Each year, the task force selects nominees in law enforcement from both Caddo and Bossier parishes who, through their tireless efforts in the investigation, prosecution or legislation, have championed the protective rights of domestic violence victims and their families.
The mission of the task force is to use every available resource to inform, enlighten and educate our citizens and our law enforcement partners of the devastating impact the crime of domestic violence has on every day society.
The task force will honor a recipient from each parish for the prestigious Trey Hutchison award at the banquet. A civilian who has made an impact on domestic violence will also be honored.
Keynote speaker will be Mariah Stidham Wineski, director of Louisiana Coalition Against Domestic Violence.
Reservations are required, and seats are limited. Doors open at 11 a.m. Tickets are $35 per person.
