You have probably seen them around before at local high-school football games and other community events, working patrol, stakeouts, transports and security. The Jefferson Davis Parish Sheriff’s Office Reserve Division works side-by-side with other departments in the Sheriff’s Office.

Minimal requirements to become a deputy with the reserve division are that a candidate for the reserves division must be 21 years of age and willing to donate at least 32 hours of volunteer time each quarter.

Anyone interested in becoming a Reserve Deputy and joining this elite team, may download and complete an application from the “Employment” section on this website.

Reserve Officers fall under the umbrella of Special Operations Commander Bill Kettler.


Special Operations Commander Bill Kettler

Commander Bill Kettler leads the Special Operations Division with almost 30 years of law enforcement experience.

Before Commander Kettler began his career in law enforcement, he attended two years at the University of Louisiana at Monroe, where he received an education in public relations and minored in criminal justice.

He then joined the Monroe Police Department in 1990 as a patrol officer and soon graduated from the North Delta Regional Training Academy, also in Monroe. In 1995, he was promoted to detectives, where he specialized in child abuse and sex crimes, before joining the Lake Charles Police Department. In that capacity, he returned to the patrol division, where he specialized in community policing, served on the federal drug task force, was a member of the U.S. Marshalls fugitive task force and was a K-9 officer, as well as a hostage negotiator until his retirement in 2012.
