In order to be considered for employment, certain minimum requirements must be met.
  • Applicants should be at least 18 years old.
  • Applicants must have graduated from an accredited high school or possess a high school equivalency diploma recognized in the State of Louisiana.
  • Applicants must reside in Livingston Parish or be willing to relocate.
Once an application has been accepted, it will be filed based on the position for which you are applying. When a position becomes available, all applications submitted for that position are considered. The final decision will be based on the qualifications of the applicant and the suitability of that applicant to the position to be filled. There is no set schedule for hiring at the Livingston Parish Sheriff’s Office, therefore, it is impossible to predict when a position will come open or what that position will be.
The fact that you have not been hired or have not been contacted regarding your application should not be considered a rejection. All applications are kept on file for one year.
Although you may inquire as to the status of your application or the avaliability of positions, it is not necessary. If and when you are considered for employment, you will be notified what the next steps will be via mail or phone.
On behalf of Sheriff Jason Ard, thank you for your interest in becoming a Deputy Sheriff for the Livingston Parish Sheriff’s Office.
