These new deputies will be assigned to various jobs. Some will work at Caddo Correctional Center, some will go on patrol while others will serve in administrative capacities.
Caddo Sheriff Steve Prator says his office started off this year 90 deputies short and they are working to add 30 more deputies in the next few months.
“We have been proactive in our recruitment efforts and very happy to have this new group, however we’re still 35 deputies short,” said Sheriff Steve Prator. “I encourage anyone who has integrity and a heart of service to apply to what I believe to be the best law enforcement agency there is.”
Applicants can be as young as 18 years old. The Sheriff's Department also has openings for licensed practical nurses, clerks and security deputies. The agency offers a full benefits package.
