The Beauregard Parish Jail is a detention center located at 412 Bolivar Bishop Dr DeRidder, LA which is operated locally by the Beauregard Parish County Sheriff's Office and holds inmates awaiting trial or sentencing or both. Most of the sentenced inmates are here for less than two years. Beauregard Parish County accepts inmates from surrounding towns, DeRidder Police Department, and the US Marshal's Service.

New detainees arrive at the jail regularly, with some being released on bail, placed under pretrial services caseloads, supervised by probation agencies, or released on recognizance with a court appearance agreement. Those who are not released await their court appearances at the jail, receiving accommodations including bedding and meals. You can see all the arrest records for Louisiana here.

The Beauregard Parish Jail facility operates with a capacity of 161 beds housing inmates, pre-trial, and a limited amount of adjudicated offenders. The Corrections Division requires multiple departments such as administration, security, support services, operations, classification, and transportation, all specializing in the various aspects of maintaining sound corrections practices in order to complete our mission.

The Beauregard Parish Jail was established in 1914, under Sheriff W.A. Martin. The gothic style of jail is commonly referred to as the "hanging jail". The jail got its nickname in 1928 after two men were hung inside the jail for killing a taxi cab driver.

The jail walls are constructed of solid concrete and are twelve inches thick. While in operation, no inmate ever escaped from the jail. The jail consists of nine cells that occupy three floors. Each cell has its own toilet, shower, lavatory, and window. The center of the jail is occupied by a spiral stairway that winds to the top of the old hanging tower. The jail could house over fifty inmates.

The jail had an underground tunnel that was connected to the courthouse. The jailers would use the tunnel to escort inmates from the jail to the courthouse for trial.
