VISITATION/VOLUNTEERING SUSPENDED August 19, 2021 - Out of an abundance of caution concerning the state's current surge of COVID-19 positive cases, the Louisiana Department of Public Safety and Corrections has extended the suspension on visitation and volunteering through October 1, 2021, at Louisiana's eight state-run prisons. The Department has taken these precautionary measures to protect its staff and prisoner populations, and will review and reconsider the need for these measures as we get closer to October 1, 2021.
