About the Washington Parish Sheriff’s Office

According to the Washington Parish Sheriff’s Office, “The Sheriff's Office Patrol Division has the responsibility of enforcing the laws of the state, both criminal and traffic, throughout Washington Parish including all municipalities even though the cities of Franklinton, Bogalusa, Angie and Varnado have their own police departments. Washington Parish encompasses approximately 670 square miles.  The Patrol Division is manned by 28 full time deputies, including those in supervisory capacities, who patrol the Parish around the clock 24 hours a day, 7 days per week.

There are several categories of calls that require the dispatch of at least two deputies. This is done, primarily, for safety concerns not only for the deputies responding but for citizens as well, especially domestic disputes or reports of a fight in progress. In fact, in all cases where a crime is reported to the 911 Center as being “in progress,” two deputies are dispatched for precautionary reasons. Arrival at a scene will determine whether a deputy can be released to take other calls or, as does happen from time to time, additional deputies are needed.”
