CPSO seeks candidates for reserve deputy class
The Caddo Sheriff’s Office is accepting applications for persons interested in becoming a reserve deputy.
Reserve deputies are volunteers who complete statemandated 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 Sheriff’s Office. Reserves are qualified to carry a weapon and make arrests.
Training for the next Reserve Academy is scheduled to begin in the spring, but is contingent on meeting a minimum required number of candidates. The Reserve Academy is typically conducted to coincide with the hours that a volunteer might be available, such as Tuesday and Thursday nights, and Satur day mornings. Classes will take place at the Caddo Sheriff’s Regional Training Academy, located at 15639 Highway One South.
Applicants are subject to the same strict hiring standards as paid employees. Reserve deputies must be at least 21 years of age and have no criminal record. They must successfully pass all Academy training and field training, followed by a minimum monthly service requirement.
Persons interested in applying should contact the Personnel Division of the Caddo Sheriff’s Office at 681-0812. Applications can be obtained online at www. caddosheriff.org.
