UNIFORM CRIME REPORTING
The Records Division is responsible for coding, counting, and reporting UCR statistics to the Louisiana Commission on Law Enforcement who sends the reports to the FBI. These reports meet state and national specifications when reporting offenses for UCR purposes.
WARRANTS AND SUBPOENAS
The warrants section serves arrest warrants issued by the courts. Types of warrants include bench warrants for failure to appear in court and affidavit warrants which are issued from an initial arrest. We also receive fugitive warrants from other agencies as well. Approximately 1,200 warrants a year are processed through this office. Another responsibility of the Records Division is to process criminal subpoenas issued by the 10th Judicial District Court and also other jurisdictions in the state. It is our responsibility to maintain accurate records of serving the warrants and attempted service, and returns of service to the courts in other jurisdictions. During an average year, the NPSO deputies execute service on an average of over 4,000 subpoenas.
When an arrest has been made, the accused will appear before the judge who will set a bond amount. Unless the judge makes a special stipulation the bond can be done one of three ways:
- Commercial Bond (Certified Bondsman)
- Property Bond (Place a mortgage on your property in the amount of the bond).
- Cash Bond
- Credit/Debit Card payments are not excepted for bond payments
Bonds cannot be processed during the following hours: 3:30 a.m – 6 a.m. and from 3:30 p.m. – 6 p.m. Information concerning the bond for a defendant can be obtained by contacting 318-357-7805 or 318-357-7840.
