Sheriff Russell Announces Calhoun Zone Deputy Assignment

Sheriff Jay Russell announces that Deputy John T. Garrett (Tommy) has been assigned to the duty of Calhoun Zone Deputy, working with Cpl. Jackie Kindrix in this capacity.

“As most of you are aware, Cpl. Kindrix has worked the Calhoun area of our parish for several years and has done an excellent job,” says Sheriff Russell.  “He continues in that role, but is currently undergoing a medical treatment program as well.  In our continued efforts to best serve the Calhoun residents, we have assigned Dy. Garrett as a second deputy to work the Calhoun area.  Once Cpl. Kindrix returns to full duty, both will continue to work in the Calhoun Community.”

Deputy Garrett has a combined total of 22 years law enforcement experience, having worked both for the Ouachita Parish Sheriff’s Office and the West Monroe Police Department. He has successfully completed numerous training courses throughout his career and brings a vast amount of experience to his new assignment.  Deputy Garrett and his family live in the Calhoun area and he is looking forward to meeting and serving the Calhoun residents.

“I believe Dy. Tommy Garrett will be an asset to our law enforcement efforts in the Calhoun Community and I know everyone will join me in support of him” says Corporal Kindrix.  “I appreciate all the support that I and members of the Ouachita Parish Sheriff’s Office have received and I look forward to returning to full duty as soon as possible.”
