About the East
Baton Rouge Parish Sheriff's Office According
to the East Baton Rouge Parish Sheriff’s Office, “The Criminal Operations Division of the East Baton Rouge Parish
Sheriff's Office encompasses the major portion of our organization. From Communications where the calls from the public
are received to the Uniform Patrol Deputies who respond to them, the Criminal Operations Division is responsible for the safety
and well-being of our citizens.
It also includes the Detective Division, which is comprised of trained investigators,
who specialize in the fields of Homicide, Forgery, Burglary, Narcotics, Juvenile Sex Crimes, and many others. Criminal Warrants
and Subpoenas are handled through this division as well, as are the records of all incidents handled by the Sheriff's
Office. The Sheriff's Office Administrative sections, such as Evidence, Equipment, Internal Affairs, and others are also
included in this division.
Ultimately, all divisions of the Sheriff's
Office fall under the guidance of the Chief Criminal Deputy.
The East Baton Rouge Parish Sheriff's
Office maintains 5 Substations to provide coverage for all areas of the parish. Four shifts at each Substation maintain 24
hour a day patrol protection. The Deputies of Uniform Patrol respond to criminal complaints which are called in through our
Communications Division. When not answering these calls, they patrol the business and residential areas of the community to
deter and detect any criminal activities.”
