Lake Charles, LA –


Due to the recent rise in COVID-19 cases in our area the Calcasieu Parish Sheriff’s Office is making adjustments to some services currently offered.  CPSO offices are remaining fully staffed and ready to serve the public, but in an attempt to keep the public and deputies safe we are limiting the amount of public in the building at one time.  The following offices have minor changes.


-CPSO ID/Records Department:  Please call (337) 491-3642 to set up an appointment for fingerprints. 


-CPSO Bar Cards:  Please call (337) 491-7960 to set up an appointment for bar cards.  We are also asking you please print out the bar card application and have it filled out prior to your arrival in an attempt to limit the time you will be in the office.  You can find the application on our website at www.cpso.com under the Special Investigations tab.

-CPSO Administration: To speak with Sheriff Tony Mancuso or Chief Stitch Guillory please call 491-3715 and they will attempt to handle your concerns over the phone, if possible.  Although Sheriff Mancuso believes in an open door policy we will not be taking walk-ins or issuing Honorary Commissions at this time to protect the health of the community and our department.  


The public is encouraged to conduct business over the phone or online if possible.  The public is required to wear a mask while conducting business at the Sheriff’s Office and will be subject to a health screening completed by a deputy upon arrival.  


There is no change at this time to visitation at the CCC or CSP; visitation will remain suspended until further notice.
