Deputies recently paid a visit to Billy Bowers, a retired deputy of the Caddo Parish Sheriff’s Office, to present him a battle flag and his service firearm as a token of our appreciation for his long-time service. Deputy Bowers is fighting a rare form of cancer. We wanted to let him know he is loved and remains a part of the CPSO family.

“We did this for Billy Bowers because he worked very hard for the Sheriff’s Office and he is an honorable man,” said Capt. Steven Joe who worked closely with Bowers.

Bowers served CPSO in different capacities between 1991 and 2018. He was a member of the reserve unit, and one of the first paramedics with the Special Response Team. He later worked at the CPSO Regional Training Academy as Range Safety Officer. Deputy Bowers retired in 2018 due to health reasons.

Before joining CPSO, Bowers served as a target intelligence specialist in the U.S. Navy from 1966 to 1970. He was also a medic for the U.S. Army National Guard from 1982 to 1989. He later joined the Shreveport Fire Department where he served for 29 years.
