    I'm not from Slidell, but they send a lot of their guys over to Mississippi for training. I've had the opportunity to be in class with 3 of them. Good group of guys and the way that they talk they are a pretty good dept. I'm sure they are like any other dept and have some squabbles, etc. They seem to be fairly steady too. Good luck.

    Hey Neil, I'm not with the department but I am originally from Slidell. Slidell is a pretty cool town to live in. What makes it great is how centrally located it is to the surrounding areas. You are less than an hour from New Orleans, an hour and a half from Baton Rouge, and a little over an hour from Gulfport/Biloxi. That being said Slidell doesn't have much to do... Generally what I do when I am in town is hunt and fish so I hope you like being outdoors because there are plenty of opportunities for that around town.

    From what I have heard about the department is that it is well funded.

    How did you hear about them opening up their hiring process?

    Hunting is great because Slidell lies right in the middle of the east and west split for the different sections of Louisiana, so it gives you the chance to take full advantage of the hunting season. Plenty of fishing on the lake also. Slidell actually just took what was left of one of the old twin spans from before Katrina and has made it into a fishing platform for the public to use.

    I would love to eventually move back and work for New Orleans. I just started in Atlanta last month and am enjoying it but there is no place like home.

    Good luck!
