Sheriff Craig Webre announced the public can now make online commissary purchases and deposits for Lafourche Parish inmates through the LPSO app and website. This new feature is available for inmates at the Lafourche Parish Correctional Complex and the Lafourche Parish Transitional Work Program.
This online service was made newly available due to the Governor’s “Stay at Home” order in response to the spread of COVID-19. To that end, deposits on inmate accounts cannot be made in person while the “Stay at Home” order is in effect. The use of the online service is strongly encouraged and is the fastest way to get funds into an inmates account. If absolutely necessary, money orders can be mailed to an inmate. Cash deposits cannot be mailed.
“Like other public agencies, we continue to ask the public to conduct online transactions as often as possible,” said Sheriff Webre. “When it comes to our detention facilities, we must take every possible precaution. By offering this new online feature, we continue to have the safety of our employees, the inmates and the public at the forefront as we do our part to limit the spread of COVID-19.”
The Lafourche Parish Sheriff’s Office contracts with Tiger Correctional Services to provide inmate commissary. This allows inmates to purchase items while they are incarcerated such as snacks, beverages, and hygiene items. Through their website, an inmate’s loved ones can deposit money onto an inmate’s account or make purchases for them. Online deposits must be $5.00 at a minimum, and online purchases must be $10.00 at a minimum. Tiger Correctional Services also assesses a 3% fee for all online transactions.
