The Caddo Parish Sheriff’s Office is planning a job fair for anyone interested in becoming a deputy sheriff, said Sheriff Steve Prator.
The event will begin at 9 a.m., Saturday, October 22, at the Sheriff’s Office Training Academy, 15639 LA Hwy. 1 in south Caddo Parish. The Academy is located 18 miles south of LSU-S.
The job fair will serve as a one-stop shop to fast track applications for POST deputy positions for the January 2017 Caddo Parish Sheriff’s Office Training Academy. CPSO officials will be on hand to administer the required law enforcement physical fitness assessment and general aptitude test. Deputy hopefuls must score at least 20 percent in each category of the Cooper Institute Standard Physical Fitness Test to move forward in the hiring process. Specifics about the Cooper test and scoring can be found on the CPSO website at www.caddosheriff.org under the Careers/Qualifications banner.
All applicants must bring a birth certificate, social security card, driver’s license, long form DD-214 if applicable, two separate letters of recommendation from non-family members, and high school diploma or GED. If the GED is from another state, a transcript is required.
Applicants should wear appropriate clothing for the physical assessment and bring their own lunch and water.
