November 13, 2023

Red River Parish Sheriff Glen Edwards is pleased to announce the addition of Kevin Broadway, Morgyn Payne and Timothy Bolyer to his patrol staff.

On November 9, 2023, these three cadets 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 Broadway previously held Level 2 Certification and served as a corrections officer for two years at our agency while Deputy Payne worked for six months as a dispatcher in our communications division. Deputy Bolyer is new to the law enforcement field.

The graduating class was comprised of thirty-two cadets representing eleven area agencies. Throughout the training, all three deputies represented our agency and community with professionalism, determination, and pride. During the graduation ceremony, Deputy Broadway was recognized for his firearms proficiency by receiving the coveted Firearms (Top Gun) Award! Great job Deputy Broadway!
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.

Congratulations on a job well done!
