Attorney General Jeff Landry Applauds House Passage of HB 455
5/8/2017

BATON ROUGE, LA – Attorney General Jeff Landry issued the following statement after the Louisiana House of Representatives passed HB 455:

“Today, the Louisiana House – in a unanimous and bi-partisan manner – passed a critical bill to clarify the law as it pertains to the tracking and registering of sex offenders. Our office’s Sexual Predator Apprehension Team – along with our LBI and our local, state, and federal law enforcement partners – works tirelessly to ensure sex offenders and child predators living, working, or attending school in our State comply with their registration and notification requirements. This process helps the public to know their whereabouts and propensities. Today’s vote takes us one step closer to helping all law enforcement agencies in their efforts to keep the public safe from sex offenders and child predators. I encourage the Senate and the Governor to follow the House’s leadership and get this bill signed into law as quickly as possible.”
