  • RE: Acension/Baton Rouge Sherrif

    Hey everyone I'm currently working for Atlanta PD but I'm orginally from Ascension Parish. I got 1 year, about to hit two years with atlanta, 6 years army, and a bachelors degree. I was recently looking at moving back to LA in the near furture. I was wondering about

    Ascension Parish Sherrif
    East Baton Rouge Sherrif
    Livingston Parish Sherrif

    I was wondering what the pay is like for these departments. I could find any pay infor for livingston or Acension, I saw Baton Rouge Parish is 34k I think for post certified officers. I was wondering if they offer a lateral academy and what the benefits are for the departments especially the retirement plan, do they offer pensions or 401k's? I was also wondering what the equipment was like, and whether or not they offer take homes. I was also curious about what the chances are for special teams and pay progression, are steps frozen with these departments? APD's steps have been frozen since 2001 and theres no plan for raises anytime soon, not before 2018.

    I've been back home in Ascension all this week and I was wondering is it possible to make on pay like 34k here? I make 43K now and I was wondering what it would be like to take that kind of cut. I know that since I've been here Ascension parish has grown and the housing prices are out of control. I can't see affording a house in Ascension on that kind of pay, not now anyways.

    I would really appreciate any kind of input on my best options as far as pay and room for advancement into special units and just any input ya'll might have. Be safe out there!

    I'm not sure what you want to do with your career, however you need to look away from Sheriff's Offices. Baton Rouge City Police conduct lateral acadmeys, however I'm not sure on the details. They are looking to do an acadmey in the near future however the list of people wanting in is a few miles long.

    If you go with EBRSO, you will unless you have a brown nose and a good mouth start in the jail. APSO I have no information about (even tho I live in ascension).

    BRPD allows take home units within 25 miles of the center of the city. I take mine home daily and live in Pairieville. I've never made less than 40k since I've started with BRPD. The base pay scales are a tad crazy to me. Last year I worked 1 day a week over time and made a very healthy wage. We have officers in our department making 100,000. It all depends on what you want to do.

    There as been recent talk of becoming a METRO P.D. but i dont see that happening anytime soon, and it seems to come up every few years.


    Any other questions let me know.

      Hey I appreciate it, I grew up in Prairieville and that place is booming with new subdivisions! I really appreciate your help, at first I thought this place was gonna be as lonely as the Wyoming forum!

      I didn't know the full service sherrif's departments were like that down there.

      Can you explain the State Supplemental pay to me please? I have never heard of this and there's not a single department in GA or any other state that I know of where the State supplements your income. Why would the State care what your making?

        Also I guess the departments down there aren't hiring very often? You stated the waiting list is a long ways? I guess right now isn't the best of times to be looking to move. When is the last time that BRPD ran an academy?

          BRPD is short 60 officers and will fill that in the upcoming future. Our list is so long just because of people wanting a change, coming from other agencies, and wanting a job they dont have to worry about losing.

          State Suppl. pay is basically the state giving us money to wrecks ahah, It is promised by state laws. It was basically given to us due to the small amount we were payed. SOmeone else may have a better answer but they also pay teachers the same way they do us. You dont start to get it until your POST.

          I just dont care for S/Os they are political and they rank and file is based on that nothing else. Our system is based on how long you've been there and if you are smart enough to make a 75 on a simple test. They craziest thing about our department is our shift schedule

              After you are post certified and have 1 year on the job,the state pays you $500.00 a month.This was begun for communities to compete with state police.It has now been added into the state constitution because some arsehat politico would try to remove it as a grandstand for votes,on an almost yearly basis.


              edited to add,Hey patroldog,did you know you left the computer logged on in the office??I didn't either till I posted this----signed,mavriktu.

                    most depts have gone to the Panama shifts,12s with a 3 day weekend every other week.Went to the casino last night,just got home and will take about 2 days to rest,so just search schedules and you will see how they work.

                      imtherookie, that is not all S.O's just like not all PD's are like yours. I worked civil service before at a PD that was far more political than where I am now, fat lazy ***es that didn't deserve to wear the badge got promoted just because they been there the longer and could pass the mulitple choice test, the ones that were fat lazy ***es that couldn't pass the test got kept on because it was like pulling hens teeth to get rid of the plugs. The Mayor was ALWAYS dipping in on business he new nothing about because he wanted to get re-elected (zhit rolls down hill).

                      We have PT test, strict FTO, fair promotion based on knowlege first, leadership ability and then longevity. A system for getting fired, that is fair (chances are given on most things) certain amount of write ups following suspensions among other actions before you go to the review panel for a recommendation to the Sheriff, none of this come in today fired before lunch just because. We have take homes anywhere anytime in the parish unrestricted (nudie bars of course) all equipment given top of the line technology AND we get a new pair of boots every year, LOL!!

                      On the flip side there are some sheriff's Offices I wouldn't take the job if they offered me the Sheriff's position, LOL! Same with some PD's out there.

                        CreoleCop This post answers a lot of my questions that I personally had about your department. I have few more I would like to ask but your inbox is full. Just let me know when you have time to answer them because I want to make sure I make the right decision.

                          Any other questions let me know.

                          Not exactly true anymore. For about the last two years EBRSO has changed it's policy about hiring. If you have prior LEO experience, military or a college degree you have a pretty good chance of going to patrol. In the last 18 months there have been tons of guys coming through FTO that were new hires. Trust me a bunch of guys in the prison who have been waiting to come out aren't happy, but it's the new way.

                          We also have take homes for anytime use ( I live out of Parish). I came here and didn't know a soul and went right to the road. I work my a** off and it's payed off for me. A hard worker here will be rewarded. The flip side, Rookie is correct, a guy might be related to someone and trump you right out of a spot you deserve. It's a political gauntlet sometimes. Overall it's a good agency with a lot of good deputies.

                          Same as BRPD, all equipment if provided (4th gen glock 22 w/light, really nice cars right now to include a bunch of Tahoes, etc, no boots provided). I'd say go with who's hiring. Get on somewhere and figure it out then. With OT and details at the end of the day the bigger agencies pay are going to pretty much equal out.

                          Good luck to you if you have any questions let us know..

                              Is ESBRO actively hiring right now and do they have lateral program or do you have to do the whole academy all over again? Also I thought I saw on the application you apply for Deputy Sherrif or Corrections. So Can you get hired as Deputy Sherrif and then they send you to the jail instead of the road?
