Sheriff’s officers graduate leadership school

Four law enforcement officers from the Bossier Sheriff’s Office graduated from an intensive eightweek-long 50th School of Executive Leadership at the Center for American and International Law in Plano, Texas, last Friday morning, April 25.

Asst. Chief Tojny Staton, chief of Criminal Division; Maj. Charles Gray, administrator of Corrections Division; Capt. Rodney Boyer, warden of the Bossier Medium Security Facility; and Capt. Gary Paddy, supervisor of Courthouse Bureau, attended the nationally recognized leadership school March 3 through April 25.

The school prepares seniorlevel law enforcement managers and administrators for leadership in a complex world of public executives. They also learn how to communicate plans and programs to their colleagues and the public and develop strategies for personal and organizational success in politically charged environments.

“Our agency is only as good as our deputies, and having the besttrained managers and supervisors will ensure we are able to meet the public safety needs of our residents for years to come,” said Bossier Sheriff Julian Whittington.

The governor is hollering that the financial sky is falling and the state is in dire fiscal straights. Legislators protest that their hands are tied by too many constitutional dedications.

It was much to my amazement that literally hundreds of Ukrainian girls were actually interested in me. Throughout each day, I would receive e-mails from the agency, with each e-mail sending a message from a woman interested in dating me.
