If you are interested in becoming a Reserve Deputy then the Caddo Parish Sheriff's Office wants you on their team.

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.
