About Louisiana Department of Corrections

The Louisiana Department of Corrections has a long rich history. For as long as anyone can remember, the towns and cities in Louisiana always had parish prisons, police jails, and state lockup facilities. Throughout these years, the state of Louisiana was always trying to improve their correctional system, with their main goal focusing on public safety and rehabilitation of those who were convicted of their crimes.

Under the Louisiana Department of Corrections, the first state penitentiary opened. This was the first state penitentiary for the state of Louisiana. It opened in 1835 in downtown Baton Rouge and was called The Walls.

As the Louisiana Department of Corrections is always improving, the agency went under a criminal justice reform. This was to try and better reach their main objectives. The agencies main objectives are to rehabilitate ALL offenders that walk through their doors and turn them into a productive member of society.
