Run by the Calcasieu Parish County Sheriff’s Office, The Calcasieu Parish County Jail opened 30 years ago in 1989. The facility began with a capacity of approximately 300 inmates and averaged about 270 inmates daily.
The Operations Division is also responsible for managing contract providers for departments of the jail such as medical, programs, commissary, and kitchen. This area also encompasses Receiving and Discharge, transport, and the Records Unit.
Presently, they are one of only two facilities in the State of Louisiana to hold this accreditation. Since 1989, this facility has maintained accreditation from the Corrections Bureau by the American Correctional Association.
However, this renovation allowed the jail to expand to 634 inmates. The current facility underwent a huge renovation between 1996 to 1998. Throughout the decades the facility has received much-needed care. It cost the county nearly 30 million.
The Calcasieu Parish Correctional Center provides its wide variety of services including educational programs such as GED Prep, MATCH/PATCH Program, Law Library Services, Reentry Program, Social Services, and Chaplaincy Services.
