The Iberia Parish Jail is a detention center located at 3618 Broken Arrow Road New Iberia, LA which is operated locally by the Iberia 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. Iberia Parish County accepts inmates from surrounding towns, New Iberia Police Department, and the US Marshal's Service.
