A Career of Service

Posted: Feb 24, 2020 3:31 PM

Bossier Sheriff Julian Whittington administered the Oath of Affirmation in a swearing-in ceremony for four new deputies in the Sheriff’s Conference Room at the Sheriff’s Command Center in Plain Dealing.

“Commissioning the oath is something I take very seriously because behind the Sheriff’s star they wear comes with authority and the commitment to provide courteous, professional, and responsive service to the residents of Bossier Parish.”

These new deputies will begin their careers by working in corrections at one of the three security facilities in Plain Dealing. They will then attend the Bossier Parish Sheriff’s Training Academy to attain their P.O.S.T. certifications.

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.

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

The process to become a member of the Bossier Sheriff’s Office team begins with signing up for a test with the Human Resources Department by calling (318) 965-3459.
