Sheriff Sid J. Gautreaux, III
East Baton Rouge Parish Sheriff’s Office

Sheriff Sid J. Gautreaux, III was sworn into office on December 4, 2007 after being elected to fill the unexpired term of Sheriff Elmer Litchfield. Gautreaux, who began his law enforcement career as a uniform patrol deputy in the East Baton Rouge Parish Sheriff's Office, served as Police Chief of the City of Baker for 27 years before resigning to run for Sheriff. As Baker Police Chief, Gautreaux was elected to office seven times, and was unopposed for the last four terms. Sheriff Gautreaux was elected Sheriff on a platform of focusing priorities on uniform patrol and developing greater communication among local, regional and state law enforcement agencies to help make East Baton Rouge Parish safer. Sheriff Gautreaux is an FBI National Academy graduate and past president of the Louisiana Association of Chiefs of Police. Sheriff Gautreaux is married to Suzi Eckert Gautreaux. They have four children - Will, Chantel, Ben and Ginny - and ten grandchildren. Sheriff and Mrs. Gautreaux are members of Baker Presbyterian Church and Miracle Place Church.
