If you're interested in becoming a deputy sheriff, Caddo Sheriff Steve Prator is holding a job fair to find some good candidates.

The event starts at 9 a.m. Saturday, October 22, at the Sheriff's Training Academy on Hwy. 1, 18 miles south of LSUS.

According to a sheriff's office news release, the job fair will serve as a one-stop shop to fast-track applications for POST deputy positions for the January 2017 Caddo Parish Sheriff's Office Training Academy.

CPSO officials will be on-hand to administer the required law enforcement physical fitness assessment and general aptitude test. Hopefuls must score at least 20% in each category of the Cooper Institute Standard Physical Fitness Test to move forward in the hiring process.

All applicants must bring a birth certificate, Social Security card, driver's license, long form DD-214 if applicable, two separate letters of recommendation from non-family members, and high school diploma or GED. If the GED is from another state, a transcript is required.

Applicants should wear appropriate clothing for the physical assessment and bring their own lunch and water. For more information, call the Personnel Division at 681-0812.
