Ascension Parish Sheriff's Office

The Junior Deputy program offers preteens in Ascension Parish a chance to interact with law enforcement professionals while learning the various skills required to be a sheriff’s deputy.

The goal of the program is to foster a relationship with preteens and law enforcement professionals in Ascension Parish while promoting how to be respectful, proactive, law-abiding citizens who possess honesty, good moral character, and the ability to perform kind acts for others.

Pre-Registration will begin on April 1 and run through April 9, accommodating the first 50 applicants. The link to pre-register will be posted on the APSO Facebook page on April 1 at 7 a.m. and end on April 9 at 5 p.m.
