Demographics/ Stats

Natchitoches District is the second largest district geographically in the state of Louisiana.  There are approximately 2000 offenders supervised in the district.

The district office is located in the city of Natchitoches, which is the oldest town in the Louisiana Purchase and has the beautiful Cane River running through the downtown area.  It has attracted film companies and has been the site for several movies.  Natchitoches is also the home of the brand new and modern facility that houses the Louisisana Sports Hall of Fame and the Northwest Louisiana History Museum.  Natchitoches District, though large in size, is considered a rural district, and the history and heritage it holds only adds to its ambience.

Special Community Projects

The district staff works closely with all local, parish and state agencies within its borders. Various staff members attend the monthly Natchitoches Law Enforcement Roundtable meeting which is a networking opportunity to share vital information among all of the parish agencies. Some of the officers also teach at the P&P POST Academy in Baton Rouge while also continuing to provide training in firearms and defensive tactics to fellow staff members throughout the year.

In addition, officers assigned to Natchitoches Parish are directly involved in the 10th Judicial District Court’s Probation Support Group which meets monthly under the direction of District Judge Eric R. Harrington and provides numerous resources to offenders involved in the program.  Supervisors and Officers provide re-entry and pre-release courses on a monthly basis at the various parish detention facilities throughout the district.  Staff members are also involved in fundraisers and events such as the annual Torch Run to benefit the Louisiana Special Olympics in addition to other community projects.
