Caddo Sheriff's Department

Retirement pay. It was once the standard for nearly every occupation in America. An employee would work the stipulated prerequisite amount of years and at that point they were afforded the opportunity to call it a day and receive pension benefits for the remainder of their lives.

Those days are pretty much gone. In fact, I've joked for years that as a disc jockey, we are on the "work 'til you die plan." Sure, we have a 401-K, but essentially you retire when you think you've saved enough of your own money to go to the house forever. It's a tough decision, at the very least, and most often employees like this never fully benefit from the "retired golden years" life that those on a pension will enjoy.

However, there are still a few of those careers out there, and one of them lies within the ranks of the Caddo Parish Sheriff's Department.

If you're a forward thinking kind of person who's smart enough to latch onto an opportunity like this, especially at a young age, you can be one of the fortunate few. And the good news is that the Caddo Sherriff's Department is hiring!
