Arcadia PD Welcomes First Female Law Enforcement Officer

(Arcadia Chief of Police Victor Rogers, Ms. Sketea Walker, Bienville Parish Clerk of Court Eddie Holmes)

A new police officer will be seen patrolling the streets of Arcadia.

On Thursday, July 22, 2021, the Arcadia Police Department added a new police officer to its force and officially swore her in.  Sketea Walker is the first female officer for the Town of Arcadia.

Ms. Walker is originally from Ada-Taylor area.  In 2005, she graduated from Gibsland-Coleman High School.  She worked as a dispatcher at Minden Police Department for about eight years and decided she wanted to become a patrol officer. 

Ms. Walker said she “wants to make a change in younger kids in the community and to show that there’s more to law enforcement than locking people up.”  Ms. Walker has two children of her own.

Congratulations, Ms. Walker.  Welcome to the Arcadia Police Department.
