ENTERTAII New.Ponchatoula Police fashions Chief Ernest Peltier and Asst-Chief Lillian Ordoyne model the new Ponchatoula Police Department blue uniforms for readers of The Ponchatoula Times. The change from tan to blue is the first in 16 years. Before that the departmental uniform was a plain blue shirt and blue trousers. Not many remember the police colors before that. They were white and blue, shirt and pants. But certainly none of the earlier uniforms can compare to the style worn now by the Ponchatoula police, with fancy piping, flashing rank designations, and specially-commissioned shoulder patches created by local artist Kim Howes Zabbia that feature the Country Market and Mail Car Art Gallery, strawberries and the state seal.
