Retirement Notice From DeSoto Parish Sheriff Rodney Arbuckle



I just want to thank the citizens of DeSoto Parish for the opportunity to serve as your Sheriff for the last 17 years. After much prayer and conversation with my family, I have decided to retire effective March 16, 2018. After 36 years of service in Law Enforcement, I feel it is time to explore other things in life. Recently, I became a grandpa to a grandchild that has experienced health issues. This has caused me to change my outlook as to what is important. During this time, my oldest son also started a law practice and will be handling criminal cases in DeSoto Parish Court system. I do not want the appearance of a conflict of interest.
As I leave this position, Chief Deputy Jayson Richardson will be appointed Sheriff. I feel that he is more than qualified and will serve the citizens of DeSoto Parish without fail. Jayson has my full support in this endeavor. I want to thank my family for their support and standing with me through the years. I will continue be active in bettering DeSoto Parish.
