2005 Press Releases

(504) 568-5208

 JUNE 16, 2005


The Louisiana Protective Order Registry (LPOR), a program of the Judicial Administrator’s Office of the Louisiana Supreme Court, which maintains a statewide repository of court orders issued to protect victims of domestic abuse and dating violence, has been invited to send its four-member training team to New Iberia to conduct a half-day seminar on June 24, 2005.

The purpose of the training, which was arranged at the invitation of 16th Judicial District Court Judge John E. Conery, Iberia Parish Sheriff Sid Hebert, Sami Riley, Executive Director of Chez Hope, Inc., and Marva Porter, Executive Director of Safety Net for Abused Persons (S.N.A.P.), is to provide participants with updated information about state and federal laws related to court-ordered relief for domestic violence victims, and to disseminate the latest version of the standardized protection order forms, which courts are required to use.

According to Judge Conery, “The Registry’s multi-disciplinary training programs are designed for those whose work brings them into contact with families affected by domestic violence. The targeted audience includes, but is not limited to, judges, court administrators, clerks of court, prosecutors, law enforcement personnel, probation and parole officers, victim service providers, and attorneys.”

The seminar on June 24 will be held at the Best Western on Hwy. 14 in New Iberia. The session will begin with participant sign-in at 8:00 A.M. and end at 12:30 P.M.

According to Riley of Chez Hope, Inc., “We are always looking for opportunities to improve our services to battered women and their children. By joining with Judge Conery, Sheriff Hebert and S.N.A.P. to bring the LPOR training team to New Iberia, it allows us to update our knowledge and to network with those in other fields, who also play a critical role in issuing and enforcing orders of protection in our community."

Porter of S.N.A.P said, “We find that victims of domestic violence may not know what the law provides in the way of court-ordered relief and protection, so it is important for those of us who assist these families to be knowledgeable of the laws related to protection and have a clear understanding of how the Louisiana Protective Order Registry works.

Unable to provide opening remarks for the session due to a prior commitment, Louisiana Supreme Court Justice John L. Weimer stated, “I regret missing this opportunity to connect with so many of the people I know and respect in the 16th Judicial District. I commend them for their efforts to provide a coordinated response to domestic violence in their respective communities.”

For more information about the seminar session and how to register, contact the LPOR office in New Orleans at 504.568.5749. The seminar, all training materials, and the refreshments are free. Continuing Legal Education (CLE) credit will be available for attorneys. Seating is limited.
