Chester Pritchett started in law enforcement in Tangipahoa Parish under Sheriff Frank M.Edwards, Jr. where he was a uniformed officer, jailer, dispatcher and under-cover narcotics agent and chief of narcotics. Following his tenure with Edwards, Pritchett spent five years in the private sector before returning to law enforcement under Sheriff J. Edward Layrisson as a part-time investigator. Over the next seven years he worked his way through the ranks as a detective, detective sergeant, lieutenant, captain and chief of detectives. In 1996 he was promoted to one of three majors in the 300 man department and in 2002 completed ten years as the chief of detectives.  
Next,Pritchett was tapped to build a Work Release Program for the Tangipahoa Parish Sheriff’s Office. As Warden he wrote the project proposal that was approved by D.O.C. for a fifty man program.

The program thrived into a seventy-five inmate unit generating more than $500,000.00 per year for the sheriff'f office and allowing inmates to pay court ordered restitution to victims and child support.

In 2004 Pritchett retired and moved back to St.Helena Parish. In July, 2008 Sheriff Nat Williams of St. Helena Parish hired Pritchett as his Chief Deputy and on March 1, 2009 Pritchett celebrated 27 years in law enforcement.
