The Belle Chasse Lockup is in Belle Chasse, Louisiana. The facility is also known as the Plaquemines Parish County Jail.
The Plaquemines Parish County Sheriff’s Office is the law enforcement agency in charge of the day to day operation of the Belle Chasse Lockup.
The Belle Chasse Lockup was not always the nice state of the art facility you see today. There was an older facility that closed its doors back in 2011 when the new facility opened.
The old facility had a lot of history throughout the years. The old Belle Chasse Lockup typically booked anywhere between 300 to 325 inmates every single day. This facility was the old style. They had the metal bars and a linear hallway between cells. This allowed for inmates to throw things at the correctional officers as they walked the hallway and did their surveillance.
The old Belle Chasse Lockup use to book and process around 7,000 inmates every year. When broken down they would book and process around 583 inmates a month. The inmates typically came from a variety of law enforcement agencies including the following:
- Belle Chasse Police
- Plaquemines Parish County Sheriff’s Office
- Kannapolis Police
- N.C. Highway Patrol
The new Belle Chasse Lockup will be able to house up to 569 adult male and adult female inmates. When you add in the jail annex that is situated next door, the total number of inmates will be around 800.
This new facility is sectioned into pods. Every inmate will be assigned to a pod. In these pods, they will have a few individual cells that have metal doors and a single window.
Inmates will have the opportunity to be in the common area of their pod for a few hours a day. This common area comes equipped with metal tables, a television with limited programming, and a shower.
