Joseph Harvin now serving our community 
on Florida Parishes Juvenile Justice Commission
At a recent ceremony, I swore in Joseph Harvin of Slidell as Commissioner on the Florida Parishes Juvenile Justice Commission serving as the representative of east St. Tammany Parish.

Joe Harvin will serve a four-year term of office on the commission, which oversees the Florida Parishes Juvenile Detention Center. He had previously served a term on the commission beginning in 2008, also under my appointment. All seven members of the commission are appointed by Judges from the City Courts of Slidell, Hammond and Denham Springs; by the 21st and 22nd Judicial District; and, bythe District Attorneys of the 21st and 22nd Judicial District.
Joe made a strong impact in his first term of office, including efforts that moved the commission to greater transparency and more effective fiduciary oversight of the FPJDC. I respect him for being willing to again serve the community in this often-demanding role. Joe's professional expertise as an attorney who has handled numerous Child In Need of Care cases makes him well-suited for this role.
The mission of the Florida Parishes Juvenile Detention Center (FPJDC) is to provide a safe and restrictive environment for juveniles who require secure detention in Florida Parishes by order of judges in the parishes of St. Tammany, Livingston, St. Helena, Tangipahoa and Washington.
An attorney in practice for more than 30 years, Joe is the founder of the Harvin Law Firm in Slidell, which is a general law practice that also specializes in maritime law. He has been heavily involved in the community, especially in the Rotary of Slidell and with the East St. Tammany Leadership Board of Directors.
