Welcome to the Rapides Parish Sheriff'S Office Website

Welcome to the Rapides Parish Sheriff’s Office website.  We have incorporated some features we believe will be more useful to the public; an inmate look up menu to see currently housed inmates, weekly listings for the Sheriff sale as well as being able to pay property taxes online.

“It is a privilege and an honor to be elected Sheriff of Rapides Parish.  It is our goal to provide the best law enforcement possible for our citizens and I will strive every day to lead the dedicated men and women of the Sheriff's Office as we work together to earn your trust and will always put your family’s safety first."
