Red River Parish Sheriff Glen Edwards is pleased to announce the addition of a deputy to his patrol staff. After doing a commendable job for two years in our corrections department, on November 5, 2020, Darryl Jordan Jr. successfully completed the Caddo Parish Sheriff’s Office Regional Training Academy. He earned Level 1 Certification for Basic Law Enforcement Peace Officers.
During each academy graduation ceremony, five awards are presented to cadets who excelled in specific areas of training. Deputy Jordan represented our agency with pride and professionalism and earned the Academic Achievement Award for highest grade point average. The graduating class was comprised of twenty cadets representing eight area agencies.
Under the direction of Captain Steven Joe, the academy consisted of fifteen weeks of intense training. Topics covered included Criminal and Civil Law, Search and Seizure, Criminal Investigations, Firearms Proficiency, High-Intensity Weapons Training, First Aid and CPR, Domestic Violence, Report Writing, Terrorism, Officer Survival, DWI Enforcement, Active Shooter Response, Knife Defense Strategies, Drug Interdiction Strategies and Physical Fitness.
In our world, training is of the utmost importance for law enforcement officers. Our goal is to continually build upon the foundation that our deputies receive in the training academy to ensure that we do our jobs professionally and safely while striving to serve our community.
Congratulations Deputy Jordan!
