Twenty-eight new State Probation and Parole Officers just out of the academy are on the streets across the state of Louisiana keeping us safe and helping offenders transition back into their communities.

The Louisiana Department of Public Safety and Corrections (DPS&C) – Corrections Services officially welcomed the new Probation and Parole Officers to the Department after they took the oath of office this month during a swearing in ceremony at the Louisiana State Police Training Academy Auditorium in Baton Rouge.

DPS&C Secretary James Le Blanc and Probation and Parole Director Pete Fremin addressed the graduates as well as the Honorable Scott U. Schlegel, 24th Judicial District Judge, who also administered the oath of office.  

The new officers will work in districts across Louisiana. During the ceremony, the Department recognized the efforts of a few cadets who excelled in various areas. Baily Carte of the Shreveport District earned the Physical Fitness Award, Chelsea Laurent of Baton Rouge District achieved the Academic Award, and Jeffrey Kelly of the Natchitoches District received the Top Gun Award.

DPS&C’s P.O.S.T. certified P&P officers supervise approximately 80,000 individuals on probation and/or parole across the state, emphasizing public safety while also helping the individual access resources that will aid in his/her efforts to become a productive member of society rather than a tax burden.

Probation and Parole officers also routinely assist local, state and federal authorities with investigations and information, including the crime prevention initiatives in Baton Rouge and New Orleans as well as various law enforcement task forces.

Congratulations to the P&P P.O.S.T Academy Class #36.
