During his law enforcement career with the Marshals Service, Turner commanded the Violent Offender Task Force for the Western District of Louisiana where he managed multi-agency violent fugitive operations which resulted in thousands of felony arrests as well as managing one of four national incident management teams as a team chief where he responded to critical incidents across the United States.

As State Representative, I will bring this leadership style of working with others to deliver results in the Legislature,” said Turner.
