On February 14, 2018, the DeSoto Parish Sheriff's Office and Circle of Hope hosted a Valentine's Day event for local children with special needs at the DeSoto Parish Training Facility. Many children and adults from all around our parish came out to enjoy fun games and snacks while visiting with Sheriff Richardson and many deputies. One class from Mansfield High School was not able to attend the event, so Sheriff Richardson along with Warden Randy Clark, Assistant Warden Billy Cotton and School Resource Deputy Andre Goodwin paid them a visit. Kids from Mr. Cartwright's class were excited to enjoy a Valentine's Day cake and Southern Classic Chicken for lunch. Sheriff Richardson would like to thank Circle of Hope, Mansfield High School's Mr. Cartwright, and the many teachers and aids who provided this opportunity to help make the event special to so many.
