CPSO is currently is accepting applications for Reserve Deputy and training for the next Reserve Academy is scheduled to begin in the spring.
Reserve Deputies are volunteers who complete state-mandated training similar to the training of full-time sheriff's deputies.
They are used to supplement full-time law enforcement officers and are subject to the same rules and regulations as full-time employees of the Caddo Parish Sheriff's Office. Reserves are also qualified to carry a weapon and make arrests.
The Reserve Academy is typically conducted to coincide with the hours that a volunteer might be available, such as Tuesday and Thursday nights, and Saturday mornings.
Classes will take place at the Caddo Sheriff's Regional Training Academy on 15639 Hwy 1 South.
To apply for a Reserve Deputy position you must be at least 21 years of age and have no criminal record. You must also successfully pass all Academy training and field training, followed by a minimum monthly service requirement.
If you are interested contact the Personnel Division of the Caddo Sheriff's Office at (318) 681-0812. Applications can be obtained online at www.caddosheriff.org.
