Louisiana Police List

black Image of scales on white background with the words, "calibrate the scales" overlaid. As with any set of scales, the scales of justice must, from time to time, be recalibrated. Total balance is never achieved, but all in the criminal justice and legal systems must strive for it as much as possible.





Louisiana Law Enforcement Agencies

Law enforcement in Louisiana at one time was very different from the rest of the United States. This was largely because of the influence of Napoleanic Law. This was law derived from the former Emperor Napolean, who controlled Louisiana prior to the Purchase made by Thomas Jefferson. Essentially, under the Napoleanic Law Code, laws were made by the legislature, then open to interpretation by judges. Thus, what was considered legal in one part of the state may not be so in another.

In 1975, the Constitution of the state of Louisiana was rewritten. Part of the reason for the change was to bring Louisiana more in line with the laws of the nation. The older Constitution had simply outlived its usefulness. Since then, the state has relied more on codified and common law, much as the rest of the county. However, vestiges of the Napoleanic code remain, though have little real practical influence, especially as it relates to law enforcement.

The only real difference between Louisiana law and the other 49 states which confuses some is the use of the term “Parish.” A Parish is the same thing as a county. The only real difference is the name. The term parish is a remanent from the days when Catholic France ruled the territory. The Catholic Church refers to territorial divisions as parishes. The political divisions which later came about when the region became a U.S. Territory, then a state, simply maintained the boundaries set by the church.

There are 18,050 police officers in the state of Louisiana. These are divided among 20 state, 64 Parish, 300 City, and 21 campus/special police forces.
