Detention Center


     The role of the West Monroe Correctional Center is the detention of adults duly taken into custody and booked into this facility by an authorized law enforcement agent. Persons so incarcerated generally fit into two categories: those detained on a pre-trial basis and those sentenced for misdemeanant level offenses. However, on occasion, prisoners convicted of felony level offenses may be detained in this facility. The West Monroe Correctional Center does house, on a contract basis, prisoners for Federal and other Local Law Enforcement Agencies.
