One morning, when Gregor Samsa woke from troubled dreams, he found himself transformed in his bedhis armour-like back.
Bossier Parish Sheriff’s Training Academy
“An Atmosphere of Excellence”
Your Bossier Sheriff’s deputies are highly trained in the most up-to-date as well as the traditional law enforcement skills. A deputy’s training does not end with graduation from the police academy. Deputies’ skills are constantly being honed through the use of in-service training sessions covering such topics as firearms, defensive tactics, and SWAT tactics.
They also learn less-than-lethal weapons, such as chemical weapons, bean bag projectiles that do not penetrate, the pepper ball — and the taser, which temporarily incapacitates by use of an electric current.
Our instructors also share their expertise with the public in hunter safety and women’s self-defense courses. For more information about these programs, the public may contact our training officers at (318) 965-3525.
The Sheriff’s Training Academy was dedicated in Sept. 2006, and it is presently providing training for peace officers from the region and throughout the world.
