Bossier deputies promoted
Bossier Sheriff Julian Whittington promoted two deputies to the rank of sergeant in a ceremony Monday morning in the sheriff’s conference room at the Bossier Parish Courthouse.
Chief Deputy Duane Huddleston officially handed out the sergeant chevrons to Deputy Tony Broadway, who was promoted after nine years of service in the sheriff’s office.
Sgt. Broadway started his law enforcement career with the sheriff’s office as a patrol deputy. He then transferred to the motorcycle patrol unit. With his promotion, Sgt. Broadway officially became the supervisor of the motorcycle patrol unit.
Deputy Erin Tindall was also promoted to the rank of sergeant. A 12-year veteran of the Bossier Sheriff’s Office, Sgt. Tindall began her career in the sheriff’s office in corrections. After two years in corrections, she transferred to the Civil Division, where she worked another two years. She then spent the next seven years in the Criminal Division working in patrol, narcotics and as a detective.
Chief Huddleston remarked that Sheriff Whittington is extremely proud to promote both deputies. “Continue the excellent work ethic and leadership you’ve already displayed, and I’m honored to promote you to the rank of sergeant. Keep up the excellent work,” Chief Hudedleston said.
