TERREBONNE PARISH CRIMINAL JUSTICE COMPLEX

 

All in-person visits to the TPCJC are suspended.

Video visits from home are available. Click on the

SECURUS INMATE SERVICES tab at www.tpso.net

main page, on the left side, for further information

on arranging for in-home video visitation. 

Essential attorney visits to individual inmates

are allowed on a non-contact basis.

 

TPSO PATROL AND DETECTIVES

 

TPSO patrol and detective divisions are fully

staffed and functioning as usual. All TPSO

personnel are following best practices concerning

sanitary procedures.

  

SPECIAL NOTICE REGARDING THE TERREBONNE

911 SYSTEM

 

As always, calls to 911 should be limited to actual

emergencies. The Terrebonne Parish Communications

District wants you to know that calls regarding medical

emergencies other than accidents now require

operators to ask some additional screening questions

including whether you have traveled recently whether

you have a fever or respiratory problems.

We ask along with them that callers be patient and

cooperative. These measures have been instituted

to keep our community as a whole and first responders

safe and effective.

 

SCHOOLS

 

By order of Gov. John Bel Edwards,

Schools throughout the state are

closed. For additional information

visit the following websites:

 

Terrebonne Parish School District

http://www.tpsd-la.schoolloop.com/

 

Diocese of Houma-Thibodaux

https://www.htdiocese.org/

 

Parents of children attending schools

outside the public system or

the diocesan system should call

those school administration numbers

or check the school websites.

 

 

BEWARE OF SCAMS AND MISINFORMATION

 

Do NOT rely on random social media posts for

information on COVID-19. Be aware that

scammers, as always, will try to take advantage

of an emergency situation. We have received

reports of calls, texts and emails claiming to

offer assistance in time of need. They request

personal information including social security

numbers and bank account numbers.

Do NOT give personal information to anyone

you do not know. Please share this information

with family members, and especially elder

friends and relatives, who are more likely to

be victimized.

 

PRICE GOUGING

 

Terrebonne Parish and Louisiana as a whole are

under declarations of emergency. Raising the price

of essential items violates state law.

Reports of price-gouging may be made to the

Sheriff’s Office. Please note that reports of

price-gouging are NOT emergencies and that

911 should not be utilized for ant reports of this.

 

HOSPITALS

 

Visitation and other policies at local hospitals

have been subject to change without notice.

Check these websites for up-to-date information

on regulations and policies. Hospitals have asked

that if any information is unclear visitors should

proceed to the institution. Please follow the

directions of staff and be courteous and

cooperative.
