The Calcasieu Parish Sheriff's Office has announced that the 101 st training academy class will graduate on Wednesday.

Wow 101 classes. A lot of people didn't know but I was a Sheriff's Deputy for ten years and I graduated from the Police academy in 1997.  I am a proud graduate of the 61 st basic training academy.

Of course, I love what i do now upholding the Cajun  culture, music and heritage but I do miss my buddy's at the Sheriff's Office.

Here is some info about the graduation ceremonies being held Wednesday.

The Calcasieu Parish Sheriff’s Office Training Academy will hold its 101st Basic Law Enforcement Graduation Ceremony Wednesday, November 9 at 10:30 a.m. in the Contraband Room on the 3rd floor at the Lake Charles Civic Center.
