The Ouachita Parish Sheriff’s Office is proud to announce that Captain Jay Ellerman, a 26 year law enforcement veteran, has graduated from the 259th session of the FBI’s National Academy Program in Quantico, VA. Ellerman graduated on March 20th after successfully completing 10 weeks of advanced investigative, management and fitness training. Ellerman was in a class of 220 officers from law enforcement agencies in 49 states, 24 international countries, 6 military organizations and 5 federal civilian organizations.

Sheriff Jay Russell, himself a graduate of the 211th session of the FBI National Academy, knows firsthand the benefits of the FBI program. “While the training offered by the Academy is recognized as most advanced available, the personal and professional contacts he made with officers from all over the world will prove to be very valuable during his career” said Sheriff Russell.
