Coushatta native completes police academy begins career as DeSoto SRO

Sheriff Jayson Richardson proudly announces that Dy. John Lary and Dy. Reagan Prosperie have officially completed Academy and are ready to serve DeSoto Parish! The Shreveport Police Academy is a 16 week program for those seeking a career in Law Enforcement. The course is a major achievement, but it does not come easy. Academy is challenging in many different areas ranging from physical, mental, and strategical operations. There is a minimum of 496 hours which must be completed and is set forth by POST, the Peace Officers Standards and Training Council. Both have officially passed the Louisiana POST Certification!

Deputy John Lary (R) will be headed to our Patrol Division, while Deputy Reagan Prosperie (L) will join the Special Services Division with a future as a School Resource Deputy! We are certainly proud to have them both a part of our DPSO Family!

Reagan is the son of Carey and Donna Waldrip Prosperie of Coushatta.
