Louisiana sheriff's office to let public see new jail
THIBODAUX, La. (AP) - The public is getting an opportunity next month to see Lafourche Parish's new jail.
The Sheriff's Office says officials have already toured the $40 million Lafourche Parish Correctional Complex during its grand opening Dec. 19, and now residents will have a chance to walk through the facility.
The Houma Courier reports three public tours will be held beginning at 2 p.m. Jan. 6. The second tour is scheduled at 6 p.m. Jan. 7 and the third is planned for 6 p.m. on Jan. 8.
Registration is required, and the deadline to register is 5 p.m. Jan. 4. Contact Sgt. Karyn Dardar at 985-860-7575.
Construction of the 118,095-square-foot (10971.3-quare-meter) structure began in 2016. Officials say inmates will be moved from the parish jail just across the road in about three weeks.
