Press Release -

July 18, 2017

THIBODAUX – Christie Pepper, an investigator with the Lafourche Parish District Attorney’s Office, was elected as the President of the Louisiana District Attorneys’ Association Investigators Board on July 8.

“We are tremendously proud of Christie,” said District Attorney Cam Morvant.  “She has been an outstanding investigator for us, so I’m not surprised that she’s now being recognized by her peers.  She is very worthy of this honor.”

Pepper was elected at the 40th Annual LDAA conference held in Destin, Florida.  She will serve as president for a one-year term. Pepper has been employed by the Lafourche Parish Sheriff’s Office for thirteen years, having been assigned to the Lafourche Parish DA’s Office for the last eight. She has a degree in criminal justice from Nicholls State University, and during her career has worked in law enforcement communications, probation, and in the court system.  She is certified through the FBI POST academy instructor course to teach POST academy courses.

“It is an honor to be nominated and elected by my peers to lead the LDAA DAI Board this year,” Pepper said.  “I look forward to working with the investigators and DAs throughout Louisiana by sharing information, the ways we preform our tasks, and learning from others.  I believe that the DAI Board is an integral part of the bridge between law enforcement and prosecution.  I want this year to be a collaborative effort and hope to bring in as much participation from other jurisdictions as I can. I owe a huge thank you to Cam and Sheriff Craig Webre for creating this opportunity for me eight years ago.”

The mission of the Louisiana District Attorneys’ Association is to improve Louisiana’s justice system and the office of the District Attorney by enhancing the effectiveness and professionalism of Louisiana’s District Attorneys, Investigators, and their staffs through education, legislative involvement, liaison, and information sharing.
