Lafayette Police Mourn The Loss Of One Of Their Own


The Lafayette Police Department and members of the Lafayette community are mourning the loss of Officer Joel Grayson. Saturday afternoon while boating in Livingston Parish, Officer Grayson was involved in a boating accident that took his life.Grayson had been with the Lafayette police for 5 1/2 years and was an active member of the LPD Swat Team. During his stint with LPD, Officer Grayson a recipient of the Lafayette Police Department’s most prestigious honor, The Medal of Valor.

Officer Grayson was a dear friend of ours and we know that he loved doing what he did. Joel took his job as a police officer very serious and seemed to always enjoy his profession.


In addition to his duties as a police officer, Joel valued spending time with his family and seemed to always cherish the moment of being on the water. The accident is being investigated by the Louisiana Wildlife and Fisheries Agency.

We would like to offer our prayers and condolences to Joel’s wife and his entire family during this time of loss.
