GLYNN POLICE REACH OUT; Officers Sending Supplies to Parishes in Louisiana Two Department Members Have Family Members in Law Enforcement near New Orleans

BRUNSWICK -- The long arm of the law is reaching out from Glynn County with relief supplies to aid law enforcement officers in two Louisiana parishes decimated by Hurricane Katrina and related flooding.

Boxes filled with donated canned and dried food, cracker snacks, insect repellent, sunblock, hand sanitizer, toiletries and first-aid supplies were loaded by Glynn County police Tuesday onto a 20-foot trailer leaving this morning for Jefferson Parish and St. Tammany Parish near New Orleans.

"We're basically delivering a grocery store to them," Police Chief Matt Doering said. "We're bringing the supplies directly to the people who need it."

Doering said department personnel have "adopted" the law enforcement officers in those hard-hit parishes for the duration of the recovery.

Hullihan grew up in Jefferson Parish. His father, Mike Hullihan Sr., is a detective with the Jefferson Parish Sheriff's Office.

Boyet's son, Jason Boyet, is a deputy with the St. Tammany Parish Sheriff's Office. The younger Boyet previously served as a Georgia State Patrol trooper assigned to the Brunswick post.

Both the elder Hullihan and younger Boyet survived without injury and remain on the job with most of their fellow officers.

Hullihan said his mother evacuated from the family's home in Kenner, La., to his home here along with other relatives.

"Momma wants to go back home right now. I'm having to practically tie her down to keep her from going with us," said Hullihan, who along with Boyet and Officer Kevin Jones will be driving the trailer to the parishes.

"Everybody is OK," he said, noting that 90 percent of his family lives in Jefferson Parish. "That is the most important thing, but they are struggling."

After Katrina hit, Hullihan and Boyet were unable to reach their families for several days to find out if they were all right. …
