Caddo deputies are taking on a new mission in flood-stricken Port Arthur, Texas, said Caddo Sheriff Steve Prator.

Now that rescue efforts are complete, deputies will turn their attention to patrol duties and shelter security, Prator said. The CPSO Dive Team and Marine Unit will return to Caddo Parish today. They will be replaced by three CPSO deputies assigned to the Louisiana Sheriff's Association Task Force. Three other CPSO deputies assigned to the Task Force are already in Port Arthur and have been assisting with emergency efforts since Thursday morning. 

It is not known how long the six will remain in Port Arthur.
