Reporting A Crime
Crime prevention is not just a job for the police department. Citizens are encouraged to report any activity that may need police attention.
Ways to report a crime:
Dial 911 immediately for ALL emergencies
During regular business hours, non-emergency calls can be reported at 337-233-3715
After regular hours, non-emergency incidents can be reported at 337-236-5895
Non-emergency calls can always be reported through 911 at any time
If you witness a crime:
Do not put yourself or your party in harm’s way.
Obtain a clothing description from head to toe of the person(s) involved. Take notice of the subject(s)’s height, weight, hair color, eye color, scars, marks, tattoos, anything abnormal, and a direction of travel.
Vehicle(s)’s make, model, color, license plate, number of doors, dents, damage, bumper stickers, anything abnormal, how many occupants, and a direction of travel.
Note any additional information that may assist police in identifying subjects involved and/or objects associated with the incident.
Video and pictures are helpful but not worth injury to you or someone with you.
How can you help:
Be a good witness and prepare to come to court if needed.
Be a good neighbor. “If you see something, say something!”
If you haven’t done so for insurance reasons, take inventory of all items in your residence with value. Take a video and pictures of electronics, jewelry, antiques, and other valuables along with their make, model, and serial numbers. Write all the information down as well. Store the information where it will not be stolen or damaged.
