The JPSO is determined to keep this parish a safe place to live, work and raise
a family. One of the keys to
achieving this is to combat illegal drug abuse.
Illegal drugs are responsible for a growing number of today’s societal
ills. Many of today’s illegal drugs
are designed to “hook” a person into repetitive use. Unfortunately, in today’s world,
these addicts are committing more brazen crimes in order to feed their
addiction, and we are all paying the price.
An even more growing problem is the abuse of prescription medication. Most people have no idea how potent
or addictive some medications in their medicine cabinet are. Education and the securing of
medications are key to combating this type of abuse.
The JPSO has established a very active Narcotics Division in its Special Investigations Bureau. If you have information on any
illegal drug activity, please call us at
or you may also email us at
In an effort to better educate the citizens of this parish of the dangers of
drug abuse, we offer several links on the effects of drugs on the human body, a
listing of controlled substances and the dangers imposed by each, brochures on a
variety of drug abuse topics sponsored by the National Drug Intelligence Center,
and a listing of Drug Abuse Prevention Centers and contacts. Please click on the links below for
