New Sheriff’s Deputies

Sheriff Jayson Richardson and the DPSO staff would like to congratulate three new deputies in their graduation from the Caddo Parish Regional Training Academy, Class of #50.   We congratulate Jarratt Palmer, Brooklyn Freeman, and Dakota McGarity who will be heading to various positions within their new Law Enforcement family. 

The Caddo Parish Training Academy is a 16 week program, with one additional week for those seeking a career in Corrections.  The course is a major achievement, but it does not come easy.  Academy is challenging in many different areas ranging from physical, mental, and strategical operations. There is a minimum of 496 hours which must be completed and is set forth by POST, the Peace Officers Standards and Training Council.  Graduation was held on November 02, 2021, at Calvary Baptist Church in Shreveport. We would also like to extend a very special congrats to Deputy Dakota McGarity, in accepting the Academic Award for having the highest test scores upon graduation!  We are proud of you all and welcome you all to the DPSO family!
