Deputy Graduates Peace Officer Training

Red River Parish Sheriff Glen Edwards is pleased to announce that Tyler Scott has successfully completed the Rapides Parish Sheriff’s Office Basic Correctional Peace Officer Training Academy.

In 2016 Deputy Scott earned Level 3 Peace Officer Standards and Training (POST) Correctional Officer certification while employed at the Natchitoches Parish Sheriff’s Office and he has been an important part of the Red River Parish Sheriff’s Office corrections staff since 2018.

On March 18, 2021 Deputy Scott and thirty-one fellow graduates were awarded Level 2 POST Basic Correctional Peace Officer certification from the State of Louisiana. With the exception of arrest powers, Level 2 Officers are trained and certified to carry out many duties often performed by a Level 1 POST certified patrol deputy.

Deputy Scott did an excellent job representing our agency and community while attending the academy and expectations are that he will continue to do so while fulfilling his departmental duties at the Red River Parish Jail.

Sheriff Edwards would like to congratulate Deputy Scott on this special accomplishment.
