Our district covers eight Louisiana parishes from the Arkansas state line in
northeast Louisiana thru to central Louisiana.
We are a special state law enforcement agency responsible for general law enforcement within a state levee district which
is defined by law and includes all of the land and water area within the parishes named. Levee District Police Officers
are by statute commissioned as peace officers by the Louisiana Department of Public Safety with police powers of arrest
throughout the district's eight parishes. They provide criminal patrol and investigation for all state crimes and certain
federal crimes. They accomplish this task by vehicle patrol, boat patrol, all-terrain vehicles and aircraft surveillance.
Levee District Officers usually work independently covering a large geographical area to accomplish their mission.
Another very important aspect of their mission is homeland security. They provide protection to the Federal Levee
Systems and structures which provide protection to the citizens of Louisiana. It is estimated that over two-thirds
of Louisiana residents are protected by levees including cities and vital infrastructures such as highways.
