A Message from the Sheriff

Sheriff Newell Normand
Keeping Jefferson Parish Safe
Welcome to the official website of the Jefferson Parish Sheriff's Office (the JPSO). We at the JPSO are committed to keeping Jefferson Parish a safe place to live, work and to raise a family.

I am honored by the overwhelming support and trust that you, the citizens of the parish, have shown to me since becoming your Sheriff. I understand how sacred and fragile this trust can be. The men and women of this office also understand the level of trust you have placed in us. The citizens of this parish have always demanded a firm, yet fair, hand when it comes to enforcing the law and carrying out justice and the JPSO has historically met this demand.

It is our hope that this website will provide you with whatever information you need about our office and its operations. If the information is not readily available, we hope to give you the means to contact us to obtain what you need. Please check "This Month in the Shield" for announcements and upcoming events.

Law enforcement is, and always will be, our primary focus; however, we cannot do it alone. In today's society, we need you, the citizens of the parish, to be more engaged than ever. We hope that the information and tools provided here give you what you need and inspires you to help us help you.

Be Safe.
