Meet Claude Louis Jr.
Hi, I am Claude Louis Jr., a native of St.James Parish and a 1982 graduate of St. James High School. I've been married 30 years to Debbie Louis, I have four children; Curl, Nikita, Claude III and Justin. I am an Air Force Veteran, I served my country from 1983 until 1995 when I received an honorable discharge. I attended Community College of the Air Force and Wayne Community College where I studied Criminology. I also attended The American International University in Business.
In 2003, I returned home and joined the St. James Parish Sheriff's Office, where I retired after 18 1/2 years of service. I graduated from the required 13 weeks of Peace Officer Standard Training and was also the class speaker. During my years of service, I worked as a Patrol Officer and was promoted to Detective in the Criminal Investigation Division. As a detective, I achieved the rank of Chief Of Detectives and Head of Internal Affairs. In 2016, I was promoted to the Rank of Major and was appointed by Sheriff Martin as Chief Of Operations, placing me third in Command to the Sheriff. As third in Command to the Sheriff, I was responsible for overseeing the daily operations of the Sheriff's Office. I held this position until my retirement in August of 2021. I networked and developed many different resources on the local, state, and federal levels during my career. In addition, I served as President of the Louisiana Fraud and Forgery Board, a member of the United States Secret Service Task Force, and a Graduate of the National Command and Staff College.
During my tenure at the St. James Parish Sheriff's Office, I was able to study Theology. After the passing of the late Pastor Eddie Narssise Sr., I was installed as Pastor of Greater Deliverance Full Gospel Church located in South Vacherie, Louisiana where I am currently serving.
I do understand that no one or nothing is perfect, but together we can strive for perfection with the formula of accepting the challenges set before us and believing in making the parish of St.James safer.
#Believe To Receive To Achieve.#
