The VISION and MISSION of the Lafourche Parish Correctional Complex (LPCC) is to provide and ensure a safe, secure, efficient and constitutional, new-generation facility.  This facility shall serve and protect the community, the staff and the inmates while seeking to return a productive citizen to our community through the use of technology, innovation, and comprehensive rehabilitative and re-entry initiatives.

The LPCC shall provide a humane parish-wide confinement facility for inmate intake, pretrial detainees, and sentenced inmates. The facility shall be operated in compliance with the Constitution; federal, state, and local laws; controlling jurisprudence; Department of Correction’s rules and regulations; and appropriate professional standards, customs and practices.

The LPCC shall work toward the accomplishment of these goals through innovative, credible, and reliable strategies to include programs, services and opportunities in the following areas:

  • Education;
  • Mental health;
  • Medical care;
  • Jail ministry/Religion;
  • Drug and alcohol use/dependency;
  • Family support systems;
  • Domestic violence;
  • Technical/vocational;
  • Other meaningful alternatives.
