A New Patrolman In Red River Parish

Red River Parish Sheriff Glen Edwards is pleased to announce the addition of Brandon Jackson to his patrol staff.

On April 27, 2023 Deputy Jackson successfully completed the Caddo Parish Sheriff’s Office Regional Training Academy, earning Level 1 Certification for Basic Law Enforcement Peace Officers as outlined by the Louisiana Peace Officer Standards and Training (POST) Council. Deputy Jackson previously held Level 2 Certification and served as a corrections officer for more than two years with our agency.

The May 2, 2023 graduating class was comprised of forty cadets representing thirteen area agencies. Throughout the training, Deputy Jackson represented our agency and community with determination, pride, and professionalism.

Under the direction of Captain Richard Corbett, the academy consisted of fourteen weeks and more than five hundred hours of intense training. Topics covered included officer survival, active shooter response, officer-down scenarios, firearms proficiency, physical fitness, and chemical weapons. The training also included legal aspects, criminal justice, defensive tactics, driving, diversity, professionalism, law, patrol/traffic, report writing, investigations, and first aid/CPR.

In today’s 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 perform our jobs professionally and safely while striving to serve our community.
