Larry P. Jones recently announced plans to run for re-election as Grambling constable in the Oct. 12 election.

He said the key issue in his platform is to motivate parents and other citizens to become more active in the education of children, with an aim to address truancy, which he says is a major issue at most area schools. 

Jones’s campaign slogan is “Moving Forward at the Command of God.” 

Among his law enforcement and community service awards are being named Constable of the Year for his “Moral and Impeccable Community Leadership” in 2016 and receiving the statewide NAACP Community Service Award in recognition of his service to the community.

Jones has received commendations from both the City of Grambling Police and the Grambling State University Police Department.

He has served on the Steering Committee of the Boys & Girls Club and on the Beautification Committee in Grambling. He is a member of the NAACP of Grambling, the GSU Tiger Men Fellowship Club and the GSU Men Fellowship Choir. He has also served as a volunteer firefighter in Grambling and is a member of Masonic Lodge #83.

Jones is a motivational speaker at area churches and schools, informing youth about the importance of staying school and receiving an education.

Jones said his re-election bid is about “a new vision for a continuing task.”
