Rayville Police Chief Willie Robinson would like to remind all Rayville citizens of the importance of obeying the laws of society. 

“Laws and rules are put into place for the safety and well- being of all,” the  chief said.

Chief Robinson advised that for every action, there comes a reaction; for every law broken, there is a consequence. 

“Some consequences may be relatively light, such as a small monetary fine or some hours of community service,” he said.  “However, some consequences are more severe and longer lasting.”

The chief encourages all citizens to contact his office and request assistance of an officer if you have a situation that is beyond your control.

Chief Robinson would also like to advise citizens to follow all traffic laws, observe posted speed limits, and make sure your driver’s license, motor vehicle inspection, vehicle registration, and auto insurance are current. 

“Failure to keep all of your necessary documents can result in large fines,” the chief said.

Lastly, please remember to keep your music at an appropriate level.

Chief Robinson encourages citizens to come by Rayville Police Department at 900 Harrison Street or call 318-728-4431 if you need his help in any way.
