United States Attorney's Office Is Now On Twitter

The U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Eastern District of Louisiana has opened a Twitter account to assist in providing the citizens in our communities with information about news, events, and special announcements through this social media channel, announced U.S. Attorney Kenneth Allen Polite, Jr.

“We want to use social media in a responsible fashion to ensure that justice reaches all citizens of Southeast Louisiana,” Polite said.  “The Office’s Twitter account will help inform the public about the work we are doing with taxpayer dollars.   Further, increased awareness of our efforts will have a deterrent effect on crime.”
