The Northeast Louisiana Highway Safety Partnership, is a traffic safety coalition comprised of multidisciplinary partners/agencies throughout the parishes of Caldwell, East Carroll, Jackson, Franklin, Lincoln, Madison, Morehouse, Ouachita, Richland, Tensas, Union, and West Carroll.

Tasked with the implementation of the regional version of the LA Strategic Highway Safety Plan, Northeast Louisiana Highway Safety Partnership Plan (, the partnership is a dedicated team of partners charged with implementing highway safety projects and programs across the Northeast Region in an effort to reduce fatalities and serious injuries in the region by 50% by 2030.

  • Young Drivers 
  • Infrastructure & Operations 
  • Distracted Drivers

The Northeast Louisiana Regional Safety Coalition holds quarterly meetings each quarter in February, May, August, and November.
