Bossier Sheriff’s Office hosting career fair

“We have immediate openings and are ready to hire” – Sheriff Julian Whittington Bossier Sheriff Julian Whittington and the Bossier Sheriff’s Office are hosting a Law Enforcement Career Fair as they seek to hire deputies and corrections officers.

“If you are seeking a career that offers excitement in the workplace and a chance to make a difference in our community, then the Bossier Sheriff’s Office may have a place for you,” said Sheriff Whittington. “We have immediate openings and are ready to hire.”

The Career Fair will be held on Saturday, April 28, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Viking Drive Substation, located at 2510 Viking Drive in Bossier City.

Job seekers will have a chance to meet the people of the Bossier Sheriff’s Office and see the many opportunities of service in a law enforcement career. Just about every job that a deputy serves will be on display – patrol deputy, K-9, SWAT, CSI, SRO, Marine Patrol – and you can ask questions to understand just how different units function. You’ll also get to visit with corrections teams – deputies, transportation officers, correctional officers, CERT members, maintenance – and hear about their specific functions. These deputies are also bringing some of the equipment they use each and every day, so you’ll be able to get close and upfront as you learn more about a law enforcement officer career with the Bossier Sheriff’s Office.

Sheriff Whittington and his command staff, along with support and administrative personnel – courthouse security, academy, Reserve, Posse, Young Marines, probation, IT – will also be ready to answer any questions you may have about a career in law enforcement. Human resources personnel will be available to answer questions about the hiring process, job openings, salaries and benefits, as well as sign up interested career seekers with an upcoming written test and conduct initial job interviews, if needed.

While deputy positions require applicants to be 21 years of age, the position of corrections officers only requires a person to be at least 18 years old.

“Bossier Parish is the fastest growing parish north of I-10, and Money Magazine recently named Bossier as the best place to live in Louisiana,” said Sheriff Whittington. “Such incredible growth, coupled with the expansion of additional school resource officers and our need to fill vacancies, means that this is the best time for the best and brightest to join our team. We look forward to meeting you on the 28th.”

There is no need to register for the career fair, but if you have any questions about employment, you may call the Human Resources Department at (318) 965-3459.

Many political “movers and shakers” attend the monthly meetings of the North Shreveport Business Association (NSBA). It’s common for the 100-plus tickets to the luncheon to sell out with a waiting list for cancellations. Such was the case for the mayoral forum on Tuesday, Oct 8.

Here we go again with meddling federal judges. The 5 th U.S Circuit Court of Appeals came down hard on Louisiana charter schools last week. Charter schools, that by definition are independent with major input from parents, now will have to bargain with teachers’ unions.

The Supreme Court of old was more majestic with few periods of confrontation. Just a decade ago, twothirds of Americans had great confidence in the Court. No more. There’s trouble brewing in those marble temple walls. Confidence in the workings of the court and the Justices themselves have dropped to a mere 50 percent approval rating.
