SBSO DEPUTIES AND SLIDELL OFFICERS GRADUATE FROM P.O.S.T. POLICE ACADEMY
Four St. Bernard Parish Sheriff’s Office deputies and two officers from the Slidell Police Department graduated July 14 from a 92-hour Corrections Division course in Peace Officers Standards and Training, or P.O.S.T., St. Bernard Sheriff James Pohlmann said.
St. Bernard Sheriff’s Office deputies who were graduates of the class are: Dep. Christopher Rico, Dep. Destiny Vosbein, Dep. Makayla Cox and Dep. Tyler Fogarty. Slidell officers who graduated are: Officer MaryCatherine Warshauer and Officer Mason Foltz.
The corrections course, which helps better prepare deputies to work in a prison environment or Juvenile Detention Center, covers topics such as defensive tactics, booking procedures, report writing and the use of force lesson plans. Deputies also are trained in the use of pepper spray, which includes each officer being pepper-sprayed in order to learn firsthand about its effects.
The course, held at the St. Bernard Sheriff’s Office Training Center in Chalmette, was led by instructors Capt. Dennis Morgan, Lt. Kyle Brown, Lt. Jodie Couture, Sgt. Brandon Lewis, Sgt. Rosalyn Warren and Dep. Darlene Ricks of the St. Bernard Sheriff’s Office Corrections Division.
