New social media posting policy released


July 14, 2022

Terrebonne Parish Sheriff Tim Soignet would like to announce the adoption of a new Social Media Posting Policy that will be implemented for all Terrebonne Parish Sheriff’s Office social media pages.

The new policy was created in response to a quality control review of Terrebonne Parish Sheriff’s Office official Facebook page.

The intended purpose of the policy is to inform the public of guidelines in the form of “comments” or “feedback” that is considered valuable to the subject matter of information released by the Terrebonne Parish Sheriff’s Office in each individual “post” or topic.

The Policy will be placed into effect immediately.
