Dariyan Octave, a former recruit of the Orleans Parish Sheriff's Office, was arrested by the office on one count of impersonating a peace officer and one count of criminal trespass.
Octave was terminated by the Sheriff’s Office on May 28 for cause during her probationary period. However, on Tuesday, the former recruit, attired in a Sheriff’s Office uniform, entered the Conchetta facility and worked a shift.
Later, a routine staffing review revealed that Octave had been terminated and was not authorized to be in the jail facility.
The investigation is ongoing and no further information is available.
