Meet the Covington Police Department

In an effort to introduce our local police officers to the community and provide an opportunity for the CPD to highlight their outstanding officers, Covington Weekly profiles are provided by Chief Tim Lentz of the Covington Police Department. Laura Aucoin joined the Police Department a little over a year ago. She excelled through her POST (Police Officer Standard Training) training and successfully completed her Field Training program. She currently patrols the streets of Covington in solo status. Laura is native to St. Tammany, graduating from Archbishop Hannan High School in 2012. After high school, she attended Spring Hill College in Alabama where she received a bachelor's degree in Criminology. Shortly after graduating, she was hired as a police officer with our agency. In her off time, she enjoys visiting with her family. She also enjoys taking on new adventures, like tomorrow on her day off, she is going ice skating. Laura is a tremendous asset to our agency, and we look forward to a long and prosperous career. - Chief Lentz
