Detectives assigned to the Juvenile Investigations Division investigate crimes against juveniles and crimes committed by juveniles. Crimes against children include, sexual and physical abuse and child exploitation. Detectives also investigate crimes committed by juveniles and can be any crime that can be committed by an adult. Additionally, detectives investigate any unexpected death of a child. Detectives work closely with O.C.S. (Office of Community Services), investigating child neglect and abuse cases. Detectives also investigate status offenses committed by juveniles. Status offenses are any offense that would not be considered a crime if committed by an adult such as truancy, runaway, curfew
The Juvenile Division also serves as the liaison in juvenile court and supports various programs, including Court School, Juvenile Offender Monitoring Program (JOMP), and Parish Juvenile Probation.
Detectives regularly participate in the "Internet Crimes Against Children" task force by providing assistance to investigators statewide in identifying and tracking on-line child predators.
In the safety and protection of our children, Detectives urge residents to contact the Juvenile Investigations Division at any time, if you have knowledge of any child being abused or neglected and you may remain anonymous.
The JID works with the Louisiana State Bureau of Alcohol and Tobacco
in conducting compliance checks throughout the parish. These compliance checks are done to prevent the unlawful sale of alcohol and tobacco to minors.
