The Jefferson Davis Parish Correctional is a detention center located at 321 East Plaquemine St Jennings, LA which is operated locally by the Jefferson Davis 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. Jefferson Davis Parish County accepts inmates from surrounding towns, Jennings 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.

Visitation is held every Saturday: female inmates are allowed visitors from 8:30 a.m. until 9:00 a.m.; male inmates are allowed visitors from 9:00 a.m. until 11:30 a.m. An inmate can request up to two visitors per visitation. Each visit lasts thirty minutes; if there are two visitors for one inmate, then that inmate’s time is equally split between them (fifteen minutes per visitor).

In order to be allowed a visit, the inmate must complete a Visitation Request form with your Name and Driver's License or I.D. Number and are allowed to request preferred visiting times. Once the inmate requests a visitation, the request goes through an approval process. If the visitation request is approved, then the inmate is given a visitation time. It is the inmates’ responsibility to inform the visitor(s) of the time of the visitation.
