As your elected Sheriff I want to take this
opportunity to give some background on just what the Sheriff’s Office is and
how important it is to the public that we serve. The Sheriff’s Office
can be traced back to 1810 when it was created, and moved to the “modern era”
in the late 1940’s. Our department has become one of the most technologically
savvy and advanced departments in the state. To date, our department has been considered
“the model” for other local law enforcement to study and learn from.
As such, the Sheriff is the highest elected
law-enforcement officer in the parish in which the people have a voice to
With this knowledge I want to assure the citizens of
Ascension Parish that I hold the oath of office to be a
sacred honor. It is our hope that this website assists you when you
may have questions or need to find information located on our site.
Our department is on watch 24/7 ever vigilant with
the mission that we have accepted as law-enforcement professionals.
Our Goal is to develop and maintain a useful and
helpful website which further enhances our belief in communicating and
educating our citizens to reduce crime and increase safety for you, your family,
and your friends.
My prayer is that by working together we will
continue to make Ascension Parish a place that people will want to live
and raise their families.
Sheriff, Jeffrey F. Wiley
