23 OPSO Deputies Pass POST Test with High Average Score

New Orleans - 06-01-2016

The Orleans Parish Sheriff's Office is pleased to announce that 23 OPSO deputies recently passed the POST statewide examination for POST certification with a class average score of nearly 90 percent.

POST refers to the Louisiana Peace Officer Standards and Training Council which has developed training standards for peace officers in the State of Louisiana. The council defines peace officer to include sheriff deputies whose duties include the care, custody and control of inmates. The overall average score for the OPSO deputies was 89.5 percent.

Sheriff Marlin N. Gusman said, "The impressive test results from this training class are a reflection of the quality of our current security staff and the progress we are making as an agency. I'm committed to provide deputies with the best training possible and I want to thank the OPSO training academy for their instruction of these deputies."

The Sheriff also congratulated all 23 deputies for their achievement and he singled out for special recognition Deputy Robenson Thelemaque (cq) and Deputy Connie Webb, who each scored 97 points on the POST test.

Other class members who successfully passed the POST examination are deputies Joseph Armstrong, Paulette Bigard, Devon Brinston, Brandy Collins, Kurt Coulon Jr., Melanie Davis, Jacqueline Gabriel, Clemont Griffin Jr., Dashaune Harris, Troyann Jefferson, Teaianna Jones, Daleesa Keppard, Ebony LaFrance, Darrineka Mathieu, Teryllynn Matthews, Neachelle Roberts, Sabrina Robinson, John Scott, Shamonece Shanks-Alex, Carlos Williams III, and Clarence Williams III (Reserve).
