As of March 19 the Calcasieu Correctional Center and the Calcasieu Sheriff’s Prison has suspended ALL visits for inmates until further notice. Sheriff Tony Mancuso has worked with our phone carriers to provide free phone calls for inmates to family members to replace visitation at this time; they will receive two free phone calls a week. We are still working on setting up video visitation for the future.


CPSO will NOT be providing fingerprinting or bar card services at this time until further notice

For those of you curious how to place money on an inmate's account without coming up to the Sheriff's Office, please reference this flyer.
