Bossier Sheriff Julian Whittington recently administered the Oath of Affirmation in a swearing-in ceremony for three new deputies and a corrections officer that have joined the Bossier Sheriff’s Office team.

The swearing-in ceremony for newly hired Deputies Preston Beach, Melissa Wells, and Brian Frazier and newly hired Corrections Officer Michelle Pereira was held in the Sheriff’s Conference Room in the Bossier Sheriff’s Command Center in Plain Dealing on Monday morning. Sheriff Whittington told the new deputies, “I welcome you to the Bossier Sheriff’s Office and commend you for joining a great team.”
All four new BSO employees will begin their careers at one of the BSO correctional facilities.
