TPD Celebrated 3rd Annual Blue Summit

“We are a shining example to the nation that you can combine compassion and policing to achieve great things.” Those are the words heard by Thibodaux Police Department personnel as Thibodaux Chief of Police Scott Silverii spoke at Blue Summit, the agency’s annual departmental meeting. The entire department gathers once a year to share a meal, receive awards, and hear from Mayor Eschete and Chief Silverii, who recap the previous year and share a vision for the next.

Chief“We’re going to continue to follow the course that has proven itself over the last four years” said Chief Silverii as he complimented the Officers for their hard work that resulted in a record low crime rate; citing the 45.25% reduction in criminal damage to property and the 40% reduction in burglaries. Chief Silverii also highlighted the importance of compassion in police work, touching on the department’s 64% verbal warning rate on all traffic stops.

“I love this department. I love being the Chief of Police in Thibodaux. I understand the significance of the past Chief’s before me, and the significance of those that will come after me,” said Chief Silverii as he spoke about the importance of legacy at the Thibodaux Police Department.

The department’s award recipients were received with standing ovations and loud cheers from their peers, who were clearly excited for the winners. Congratulations to the following award recipients:
