The Louisiana Department of Public Safety and Corrections has an Offender Locator service accessible by phone that allows callers to search for Louisiana inmates either by the inmate's name and birth date or by the inmate's DOC number. The service provides the inmate's location, contact information, and projected release date.
Another resource is the Louisiana Automated Victim Notification System, a service available online and by phone. This system allows users to access the location of offenders and, for certain jurisdictions, information on an offender's custody and case status.
The Deputy Secretary's Office handles requests for public records. These requests must be made in writing.
