Police Jury Launches New Parish Website

The new site is loaded with features that will be of great benefit to the public.

Post Date:06/04/2009 11:00 AM
The Calcasieu Parish Police Jury recently launched a newly re-designed website to the community. The last time that the Parish website had been refurbished was in 2003. Since that time, much technological advancement in both information and usability has been made. Parish employees found that the old site was outdated and not able to support these new advancements.

Inside the new website, the public will now have the opportunity to become more engaged with the latest news and happenings within the Police Jury. E-News Notification is a function that allows a user to choose amongst many categories and topics that provide news on a regular basis and get notified via email when a new item has been added. C-Gov, the Parish’s Government Channel, will be posting videos on a regular basis that will highlight current events, Parish news, and videos related to our youth for educational purposes.

Usability is also very present throughout the site. A citizen can now choose among many services in the “I Want to…” section of the website. Among the services offered, anyone can now apply for a job online, or submit a request to a certain department. For contractors in the area and around the country, they now have the ability to bid on projects online. Mosquito Control will also be posting their spray schedule on a daily basis to inform the public. More features will become available in the near future as well, as the website continues to evolve.

A special section has been reserved for children living in the area. Likewise, there is also a “Teacher’s and Student’s” section that helps to answer the most popular question, “Why is it called a Police Jury?”, and other valuable questions. 

Frequently Asked Questions can be found in the website. Over the past several years, departments within the Police Jury are familiar with common questions that are asked on a daily basis from a citizen. The public now has the ability to find the answers to their questions online. Several categories have been formed; there is even a section devoted to children.

The Police Jury urges the public to continue to keep visiting the new website on a regular basis, as new information and services will be added frequently. If you have any questions about the website, please contact Jason Barnes, at 721-3500.
