The Morehouse Parish County Sheriff’s Office is the agency in charge of the Morehouse Parish Work Release. The Morehouse Parish Work Release is mandated by the Louisiana Law, but the sheriff’s office is the agency responsible for maintaining the facility up to the Oregan state standards.
This facility replaced the jail at the courthouse that the county was using since 1939. The facility opened its doors back in May 1989. When the jail opened they could only hold 114 inmates at any given time. This jail could only hold 24 inmates at any given time.
All violent and out of control inmates will be separated from the general population inmates to keep the peace inside the facility at all times.
All staff members are highly trained when working with inmates. They went through rigorous training that will allow them to protect themselves, inmates, and even visitors if needed. The main mission in the Morehouse Parish Work Release is to provide the necessary resources to both inmates and staff to help rehabilitate the individuals to become productive members of society.
While inmates are serving their time in the Morehouse Parish Work Release they will have access to a GED prep program, medical care, and three meals a day.
Majority of the inmates that are already sentenced have sentences less than two years. The Morehouse Parish Work Release accepts inmates from surrounding municipalities and towns when there are no rooms in city jails.
