Winn Parish Sheriff's Office operates the Winn Parish Detention Center where both Winn Parish detainees, as well as a small number of inmates for the Louisiana Department of Corrections are held. In 2018 our new facility located on Thomas Mill Road in Winnfield was opened and replaced the aging facility located on the third floor of the Winn Parish Courthouse.
Individuals who are wishing to visit inmates at the Winn Parish Detention Center may do so during visitation hours at the facility, and it will be done through a video visitation system at the facility. There will not be any physical contact between visitors and inmates.
At this time, no packages are being accepted by the Winn Parish Detention Center for inmates. Items which inmates may need, and are allowed to have, are available for the inmate to purchase through their commissary. Information for providing money for an inmate to use will be below.
If you wish to give an inmate money for them to use for phone cards or other items available to them through their commissary, there are a couple of ways in which this may be done. You may do so in person at the Winn Parish Courthouse inside the Sheriff's Office during normal business hours, or may use the online portal for TigerDeposits.
Once on TigerDeposits, select "Web Deposits", then search for the inmate you wish to deposit money for and follow the directions on the screen.
