Posted: Updated:
BOSSIER PARISH, La. -

Bossier Parish Sheriff's deputies are sharpening their skills to better serve you. Over the past couple of weeks, commissioned deputies participated in an 8-hour refresher course on CPR, blood borne pathogens and proper use of the gas mask during various scenarios.

“Ensuring our deputies are adequately trained and well-equipped is of utmost importance so that we can properly respond to any situation,” said Bossier Sheriff Julian Whittington.

Training throughout the year also includes firearms, defensive tactics, criminal law updates, ethics and other relevant issues.
