The Church Point Police Department has made several arrest stemming from shootings which previously occurred in the Town of Church Point.  Indictments were found on several Juveniles involved in shootings. The Juveniles have been booked into the Acadia Parish Jail as adults and will also be prosecuted as such in 15th Judicial District Court. The Juveniles indicted are from the Church Point, Rayne and Crowley Area. No information is being released on the Juveniles at this time due to further investigations still ongoing.

Chief Dale Thibodeaux of the Church Point Police Department says, "We will not take any crime lightly in Church Point whether it be Adult or Juvenile crime. We will investigate every shots fired call we get to the best of our ability. I also want the public to know that when threats are made over any social media platform that puts lives in danger or a direct threat towards someone's life and evidence can be obtained to verify the threat we will investigate and prosecute these incidents to the fullest extent of the law. We are here for the safety of the Town of Church Point and ask all citizens if you see something say something please."
