OPELOUSAS, La. — The St. Landry Parish Sheriff’s Office announced Tuesday that two more sheriff’s deputies have graduated from the 56th session of St. Martin Sheriff’s Basic Training Academy.

Those deputies are Deputy Daniel Allemond and Deputy Maria Deville.

According to a release, the police academy is 15 weeks of intense and strenuous classes that instruct officers throughout the Acadiana area.

During the course, cadets are instructed in firearms qualifications, physical fitness, first aid/CPR, academic courses and must pass a State of Louisiana Police Officers Standard Training test to be certified as a peace officer.

The sheriff’s office also had one other deputy attend the academy, Det. Steven Hidalgo, but was there for a refresher course due to a break in service, the release states.
