The SCAT Team (Sheriff's Community Action Team) is a component of LPNET. SCAT consists of uniformed deputies who patrol streets and neighborhoods to combat drug crimes. SCAT deputies have been responsible for the seizure of thousands of dollars in illegal drugs. This unit uses a drug-sniffing dog to assist in locating drugs. The K-9 unit is always on call an can respond to requests for assistance by any local law enforcement officer. SCAT's efforts, along with those of the investigators assigned to LPNET, are making it more difficult for drug traffickers to operate in Lincoln Parish.
