In the state of Louisiana, various correctional facilities are managed by different levels of government, such as state, federal, and county authorities. For families and loved ones who are searching for an inmate in Louisiana, it is crucial to understand the different methods of inmate lookup based on the jurisdiction of the correctional facility. 

The Louisiana Department of Public Safety and Corrections (DPS&C) is responsible for managing state correctional facilities. This department oversees the custody, care, and rehabilitation of offenders within the state prison system, working towards ensuring public safety and reducing recidivism. 

The DPS&C operates several state prisons throughout Louisiana, including but not limited to: 

  • Louisiana State Penitentiary (Angola) 
  • Elayn Hunt Correctional Center 
  • David Wade Correctional Center 
  • Rayburn Correctional Center 

To locate an inmate within the state prison system, family members and loved ones can use the Louisiana DPS&C's Offender Locator system, available on their official website. By entering the offender's name or DPS&C number, users can access basic information about the inmate, such as their current location and projected release date. 

Federal correctional facilities in Louisiana are managed by the Federal Bureau of Prisons (BOP), a division of the United States Department of Justice. Two main federal prisons in Louisiana are: 

  • Federal Correctional Institution, Oakdale (FCI Oakdale) 
  • United States Penitentiary, Pollock (USP Pollock) 

To search for an inmate in a federal prison, users can access the BOP's Inmate Locator tool on their official website. This tool provides information about inmates in federal custody, including their identification number, current facility, and release date. 

In Louisiana, county jails are managed by the respective parish sheriff's offices. These facilities typically house inmates awaiting trial or serving short sentences for minor offenses. To locate an inmate in a Louisiana parish jail, family members and loved ones can visit the parish sheriff's office website or contact the office directly for more information.
