Demographics/ Stats

The Shreveport District supervises probation and parole cases in Caddo and Bossier ParSPD pic -- Leblanc at DRCishes.  The courts in those two parishes are the First and Twenty-Sixth Judicial District Courts.  The office currently supervises approximately 5,400 convicted felons, of which 190 are sex offenders.  SPD works with the U.S. Marshals Task Force on warrant roundups, tracking fugitives and assisting in investigations.  We train regularly, we protect the public by taking drugs and guns off the streets and we partner with other providers to rehabilitate individuals through various reentry programs like the Day Reporting Center in Shreveport.  (At right, DPS&C Secretary Jimmy Le Blanc speaks with a participant in the Shreveport Day Reporting Center).

Special Community Projects

Shreveport District Probation and Parole officers participate with the Meals on Wheels Program.  This program delivers healthy meals to individuals who are able to live at home but are not able to go purchase food or cook it.  The meals are delivered to the Shreveport District office each morning and then officers deliver the meals to eight individuals who live in the vicinity of the office.
