A 28-year veteran of the Caddo Parish Sheriff's Office has been designated as a Certified Homeland Protection Professional by the National Sheriff's Association and the National Domestic Preparedness Coalition.  

Lieutenant John Fourcade is the first law enforcement officer in Louisiana to achieve this designation.  What this means is that Lt. Fourcade has been trained in prevention, preparedness, protection, response to and recovery from all hazards, including terrorism.  It also means that he's been able to demonstrate knowledge and skills in Homeland Protection and that he's completed a rigorous qualification and testing program to become certified.  Caddo Sheriff Steve Prator says, "Lt. Fourcade has been placed among a distinguished group of our country's homeland protection professionals.  Caddo Parish is fortunate to have his experience should the need arise."  Fourcade currently serves as the Executive Officer of the Caddo Sheriff's Patrol Division.
