Rapides Parish Sheriff’s Office holds a weekly Sheriff’s Sale each Wednesday at 10:00 am. This is a public auction and bidding is open to everyone. If you buy a piece of property at the sale, you must pay the Sheriff’s office in full by 2:00 p.m. on the day of the sale; payments must be made with a cashier’s check, certified check or bank money order. Anyone interested in bidding must submit an irrevocable bank letter of credit to the Civil Division prior to the sale.

The Rapides Parish Sheriff’s Office does not do evictions from rental properties. If you need assistance in that area, contact the Ward Marshal or Justice of the Peace in the ward where the property is located.
