Four Ascension Parish deputies graduated from the Capital Area Regional Training Academy in Baton Rouge on July 8.

Deputies Kaid Delaune, Seth Boudreaux, Christopher Aucoin and Joseph Patane were part of the 36-member graduating group representing 17 different agencies from across the state.

The graduates took part in physical training and learned legal- and report-writing skills, law enforcement history and other skills, a news release from the Sheriff’s Office said.

“This graduation represents 11 weeks of hard work and resulted in all of these deputies attaining their post certification,” Sheriff Jeff Wiley said.

Patane was elected by his peers to be the class president.
