The Orleans Parish Prison is nestled in New Orleans, Louisiana. The Orleans Parish County Sheriff’s Office is the law enforcement agency behind the day to day operations at the Orleans Parish Prison. All county jails in the state of Louisiana are always maintained and operated by the county sheriff.

The original Orleans Parish Prison was situated in the original historic limestone courthouse in the downtown area of New Orleans. Inmates were housed in this original facility from the day it opened in 1939 all the way up to 1985. It was not until 1985 when the new and improved Orleans Parish Prison that you see today opened their doors.

For many years after the new facility opened their doors, New Orleans was going through a rapid growth when residents flocked to the county. In order for the county to keep up with the growth of new residents, they needed to expand the facility as well. With new residents lead to more people committing crimes and being placed in the Orleans Parish Prison.

It was not until 1999 when the Orleans Parish Prison went under a big expansion project. This expansion project would double the size of the facility to its current capacity. As of today, the Orleans Parish Prison can house up to 337 inmates.

Even today, the county is still rapidly growing and the need for another expansion is on the horizon.
