The Northeast Louisiana Highway Safety Partnership, is a traffic safety coalition comprised of multidisciplinary partners/agencies throughout the parishes of Caldwell, East Carroll, Jackson, Franklin, Lincoln, Madison, Morehouse, Ouachita, Richland, Tensas, Union, and West Carroll.

  • Occupant Protection 
  • Young Drivers 
  • Infrastructure & Operations 
  • Distracted Drivers

The Northeast Louisiana Regional Safety Coalition holds quarterly meetings each quarter in February,  May, August, and  November.
