Our congratulations and thanks go out to the Caddo Parish (Louisiana) Sheriff’s Office, recently named a Remington College 2014 Star Employer by our Shreveport Campus.

With the support of Caddo Parish Sheriff Steve Prator and Lt. Philip Escudé (Internal Affairs/Personnel Division) and the assistance of Deputy Pat Sepulvado (Selection and Recruitment Specialist), three graduates from our Criminal Justice associate’s degree program in Shreveport have been hired over a span of just five months.1

Jacinda White, the first hired graduate, began a clerical position with the Sheriff’s Office and has qualified to attend the Basic Law Enforcement Academy in August of 2014.1

About the Sheriff’s Office
The Sheriff’s Office in Caddo Parish is a professional law enforcement organization committed to meeting the needs of the parish and its residents. Additionally, the Sheriff’s Office provides a wide variety of career opportunities in the law enforcement field and employs more than 600 Peace Officer Standards Training (POST) and non-POST certified deputies who contribute to the overall efficiency of the department.

More About POST and Certification
POST deputies are certified by the Peace Officer Standards Training Council of Louisiana. In Caddo Parish, deputies are dually certified in the areas of law enforcement and corrections, giving each the authority to make arrests, carry firearms, and execute warrants. Certified deputies can also work in other areas such as at the Caddo Correctional Center or in Narcotics, Internal Affairs, Identification, Training, Community Relations, Probation, or the Bailiff’s Office.1

POST-certified deputies in Security have the opportunity to receive specialized training and serve in a number of unique functions such as Search and Rescue, Hazardous Materials, K-9, Bomb Squad, Dive Team, Emergency Response Team, and Special Response Team. Corrections Deputies work exclusively at the Caddo Correctional Center.

Non-POST deputies are commissioned by the sheriff but do not have the power to arrest. Included in these positions are telecommunications deputies, who process and dispatch calls for service from the public. Most non-POST employees who are not deputies serve in administrative or support roles like nurses, cooks, and mechanics.

Remington College is grateful to the Caddo Parish Sheriff’s Office for their continuing mentorship of our Criminal Justice students and graduates and their ongoing and very valued support of our Shreveport Campus.
