BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) -

42 students representing 13 different agencies from across the state graduated from The Capital Area Regional Training Academy on Tuesday.

CARTA, the 426-hour, 12-week long extensive training program is a product of the EBRSO. The 43 graduates passed physical training tests, and studied topics like the history of law enforcement, legal and report writing among other topics and skills.

The seven Ascension Parish graduates include Wendell Crawford, Carson Fee, Eugene Ferguson, Austin Gautreau, Patrick Landry, Paul McCrory, and Trey Richard.

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

Ascension Staff Sergeant Eugene Ferguson was elected by his peers to be the class president, and Deputy Paul McCrory was elected as vice-president. Sheriff Wiley challenged the graduates to continue their formal education as they continue to serve as Ascension deputies.
