2020/2021 - Lt. David Roddy

Jefferson Parish Sheriff's Office

Lt. David Roddy comes in contact with many people while working his detail at the Walmart in Harahan. Lt. Roddy met Sophia and they immediately bonded.  According to Sophia’s grandmother, at least once a week for the past year, Lt. Roddy spent quality time with little Sophia. Once, when Sophia had a particularly difficult appointment with the dentist, Lt. Roddy bought her a Barbie doll she had been wanting, just to cheer her up.  Sophia is not the only child who has benefitted from Lieutenant Roddy’s dedication to his community.  Lt. Roddy also is an active volunteer and board member for Angels’ Place, a non-profit organization that provides ongoing support services to children with life-threatening illnesses and their families.   Even after spending time with Sophia and serving on the board of Angels’ Place, Lt. Roddy still finds a way to spend quality time with the clients of Magnolia Community Services, a local non-profit organization that provides support to adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities.  Many of the clients at Magnolia are avid Saints fans, so during football season, Lt. Roddy takes them to the Saints home games.  You can see the joy in their faces in the picture up on the screen.  During the off season, Lieutenant Roddy frequently takes the Magnolia clients bowling, another one of their favorite activities.
