WOW to Zayne Aizen (Public Works)!

To Whom It May Concern:

On Sunday, August 24, 2003 my wife and I awoke to the smell of gas in our home.  After checking all gas appliances and finding that no pilot lights were lit, we called the City to ask for someone to come to our residence.  Very promptly a Mr. Aizen arrived and was very courteous in his manner.  As we suspected the worse, he calmed our fears, and diagnosed the problem immediately.  I am writing this letter to commend Mr. Aizen on a job well done.  He represented the Utility Department of the City of Thibodaux in such a way that I felt a need to thank him.  It is often a rare occasion to be fortunate in meeting someone that takes his job seriously and with a positive attitude.  Please extend my sincere gratitude to Mr. Aizen.

Thank you,

(Resident)
Thibodaux Police Department Press Release
The Thibodaux Police Department held a Department wide Inspection on the afternoon of September 3, 2003 at the Thibodaux Civic Center.  The inspection was held in the main arena.  Civic Center Director Curtis Hue and his staff set up the arena for the event.  The Lafourche Sheriffs Office and a Lafourche Parish 911 operator, handled calls for service in the City during the Inspection ceremonies.

Presentation of the Colors was followed by a moment of silence for our fallen friends and brothers, Kurt “Woody” Harrelson and Chaney Champagne of the Lafourche Parish Sheriff’s Office, and then an opening prayer led by Reverend Jerry James.

Chief Howard P. Robertson and Mayor Charles Caillouet conducted the inspection of all Police Department personnel.  This included the Patrol, Narcotics and Detective Divisions, as well as Headquarters personnel.

Each Lieutenant representing one of these sections of the Department gave brief statements of their commitment to the City of Thibodaux, the Police Department and its personnel.  The three Captains of the Department, Keith Chiasson, Jerry Don Wyeth, and Scott Toups also gave statements of commitment.  Some of these commitments included Protection of Life and Property of citizens, providing high quality public service and to treat all people with respect and sensitivity.

Chief Howard P. Robertson introduced members of the Mayor’s staff and Department Heads and explained their importance to the smooth operation of the Police Department.  Chief Robertson also gave his commitment to his “new” City and the Police Department.  This commitment is to “strive for excellence” no matter what the job assignment.  Chief Robertson reaffirmed the Departments Oath, “To Serve and Protect”.  The Chief expressed his observation of the pride exhibited by each Officer at this inspection and gave ideas on how to exhibit this pride every day, stating that each Department member is an ambassador for the City of Thibodaux.

Mayor Caillouet gave a statement reaffirming his goals for the City of Thibodaux.  The Mayor stated that the City is moving forward into the 21st Century and with this he expressed his desire for Thibodaux to be recognized as a “best place to live” by providing a safe environment and being a showplace for residents and visitors.  He would like Thibodaux to become the most desirable city in the country for people to live.

Department Members re-took their “Oath of Office” which was administered by Mayor Caillouet.  The Thibodaux Police Department’s Oath of Office is the swearing by an Officer to obey and uphold the constitution and laws of the Nation and State and all laws and ordinances of the Parish and City to the best of their ability and understanding.

The Inspection ceremony ended with a closing prayer by Reverend James followed by a meal prepared and served by Bubba’s II Restaurant of Thibodaux.

The Police Department wishes to express special thanks to Mayor Charles Caillouet and his staff, Curtis Hue and staff, and Douglas Swanner of Bubba’s II Restaurant.
