Bossier Sheriff Julian Whittington welcomed three new Correctional Officers to the BSO family.

Steven Gilbert, Shay Taylor, and Christopher Phillips were formerly welcomed as new employees of the Bossier Sheriff’s Office. Steven Gilbert has been working with the Sheriff’s office since the end of April. Both Phillips and Taylor were hired on June 13.

“We are so glad you guys decided to join our team and you’ll soon discover how exciting and rewarding it can be this working here, said Sheriff Whittington.

Steven Gilbert, pictured in the tan uniform shirt, is currently a Sheriff’s POSSE member, and he is already working at the SHISAP Facility.

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 requires a person to be at least 18 years old.
