The St. Landry Parish Jail is a medium-security facility that houses both adult female and adult male inmates. The facility will not house any juvenile inmates whatsoever.
In 10-15 years, the St. Landry Parish Jail lost its “grandfathered” status. The layout of the jail was not user-friendly whatsoever, while the jail did not provide a safe working environment for the staff members. Back in 2013, the Louisiana State Department of Corrections Chief Jail Inspector, Delbert Longley announced to the Sheriff and the Board of Supervisors that the St. Landry Parish Jail was not meeting the necessary needs of the public, inmates, or staff members.
The facility says this is partially due to cases not being tried in a timely fashion. As of lately, the average daily inmate population averages in the 240 area.
As of current, the jail is only capable of holding 12 inmates. The entire purpose of the St. Landry Parish Jail is to contain people who are arrested for crimes they have committed throughout St. Landry Parish County.
These jail cells consist of three single cells, one six-person cell, and one three-person cell. The St. Landry Parish Jail has five jail sells. The facility holds both male and female inmates alongside juveniles as well.
