On Saturday, August 29th, President Trump, Governor Abbott, Senator Cruz, and several other Federal and State Officials visited SW Louisiana and SE Texas, following landfall of Hurricane Laura.
During this time, Orange County officials had the opportunity to show both President Trump and Governor Abbott the hardest hit areas of Orange County, utilizing one of the Orange County Sheriff’s Office Drones.
The Orange County Sheriff’s Office operates these drones under a COA, which is a Certificate of Authorization issued by the Federal Aviation Administration. The drones can be used for anything from surveying storm damage to locating a lost child. They’ve become a valuable asset to this agency, as well as many agencies across the United States.
Pictured here is President Donald Trump, Governor Greg Abbott, Orange County Judge John Gothia, and Sheriff’s Office Lt. Joey Jacobs.
Lt. Jacobs stated, “After landfall, we flew for search and rescue, as well damage assessment”.
These photographs were taken at the Orange County Expo Center, which is activated during natural disasters as the Emergency Operations Center for the county.

Tell us how the President was interacting and speaking to you all. Was rude and snooty? Or was he kind and caring? I think people really need to hear how he was in person. I think he would have been great. ❤
I hope they will get some funding out here to help those who need it
Go, Joey! Good job!
How exciting and what an honor..
What an Honor.
Joey!!! Heck ya! Look at you!! So proud!!
I Hope this will help get FEMA Assistance approved. Governor Abbott..

If you have a pet it should be for life. My question is... If you leave a animal behind during a mandatory evacuation and it get loose and causes injury to a individual; what is Texas or Port Arthur laws on this?
Love this! Pet education is vital. They are not just a pet, they are family. 😻
Luckily our city did not sustain much damage from Hurricane Laura and more importantly, there was no loss of life. Most citizens heeded the warnings given by local officials and followed the mandatory evacuation to ensure their safety. Evacuations went smoothly and we appreciate the cooperation of our residents and the assistance of our partnering agencies.
We are very proud of the men and women of the Port Arthur Police Department and the extended hours devoted during this crisis. Officers, dispatchers and civilian personnel worked exhaustive hours before, during and after the hurricane in order to maintain and continue police services to the residents of our city.
We are also thankful to the linemen who responded to our area and worked tirelessly to restore our electricity and the many businesses and people who cooked or delivered food to us. Your thoughtfulness is very much appreciated. ... See MoreSee Less
Burglary Call Leads to Arrest- 4000 Block of Maida
On Sunday, September 6, 2020 at 4:37 p.m., Beaumont Police responded to an apartment in the 4000 block of Maida in reference to a burglary. The victim reported that 5 televisions were stolen from the apartment. While the Officer was taking the report, he was notified of a recent “for sale” post on Facebook Marketplace, listing 5 tvs matching the description of the ones stolen in this case. Additionally, the victim was contacted by someone who believed that they had purchased one of the stolen tvs earlier in the day. From information obtained through the investigation, it was learned that the person selling the stolen tvs, was doing so from an apartment in the same complex. A burglary unit Detective obtained a search warrant for the suspect’s apartment and he was taken into custody. The suspect was identified as Terrence Jones, a 38 year old Beaumont resident. A search of the apartment revealed the victim’s 4 other televisions. At this time, Jones was arrested and charged for Theft/possession of stolen property, pending the completion of the investigation for a possible upgraded Burglary charge. ... See MoreSee Less

Novan Anderson well he killed my brother and God don't sleep never wish nothing bad but when god give us second chances we need to be greatful now like I said from the beginning one black man dead and another one back in the pin so black lives matter y'all get it yet and all along the game was set like that, give him a handshake give him another chance,now he's going back.From my Tina because I miss my brother every day
That is one way of getting back were you are comfortable. Not all People want to be free. Life in Prison is structured.
Bye Boy! Enjoy your next stint back in the Pen. 🤷♀️
Bonds set today totaling over $400,000.00 for all charges.
Any word as to whether or not this is the same person that was driving by pointing a gun in Dowlen West on Sunday?
Now throw away the key
This is EXACTLY why we dont need to take ANY guns away from law abiding citizens. Just like those illegal drugs in his car, if a felon can get a gun, all Americans should be able to legally purchase whatever gun they want. The government will never be able to keep them out of the hands of criminals.
Well he gonna be gone for w min if not life depends on what his first felony was far
A swinging door he goes yeah he goes in/out he goes in gets OUT Same person same offenses this is why the system is so screwed up my bad covid 19 worse Hello Guns areAnd he's jacked up on drugs!!!
He always had a smile on his face except for this picture. In TDC he used to tell everybody if nobody put they hands on you that you shouldn't put your hands on them. He really was a great dude. Free him for real. I'm serious too. He had my back in TDC too. He fed me before. He's innocent I know
He needs to wipe that smirk off of his face. Looks like he's proud of what he did! smh
FYI you have not been indicted yet
Just can’t fix stupid!! Jail must be a wonderful place!!
Smh told him the streets ain't what it is..smh
I heard the gunshots too
Apparently, he didn't learn a lesson.
