Lafayette Parish Corrections Division
The LPSO Corrections Division consists of over 400 employees working at four locations. In addition to the main correctional facility located downtown, the Corrections Division also consists of the Community Corrections Campus located in the former J. Wallace James Elementary School on Poydras Street in North Central Lafayette and the LAPCORR Inmate Industries facility located on Grissom near the Lafayette Airport. In addition to its staff of highly trained enforcement personnel, the Corrections staff also includes dedicated professionals in the field of medicine, education, and counseling to provide a wide variety of services to its offender clients.
In 2009, Sheriff Mike Neustrom announced the acquisition of a 29-acre parcel located on Willow Street. Plans are now underway to begin the construction of a new state of the art public safety complex combining and expanding current service capabilities and keeping pace with the growing needs of Lafayette Parish.
The mission of the Lafayette Parish Corrections Division is to provide quality cost effective management of the offenders within the system, while building skill sets that will successfully re-integrate the offenders back into society. We shall complete this mission by:
- Providing quality evidence based practices that are known to be effective
- Starting the re-integration process as early as possible
- Requiring all able bodied inmates to work and or participate in programming
LPCC processes approximately 12,000 arrestees each year providing the city and other local municipalities with booking, identification, and inmate housing services.
LPCC operates as a small city within Lafayette Parish. The facility houses a full service kitchen, laundry facilities, GED services, job-seeking education, counseling services, religious services, recreation, social visiting, commissary, a library, and mail distribution. LPCC also facilitates several work crews that provide services within the community. Due to the constant operation of LPCC, staffing and maintenance are important components leading to its proper management.
