Diversion Programs at Lafayette Parish Correctional Center
The Lafayette Parish Correctional Center offers a number of programs to assist incarcerated and justice-impacted individuals. Their Alternative Sentencing Program allows individuals with specific criminal convictions to serve time in their homes, rather than in a correctional facility. Case managers work directly with individuals to ensure they fulfill the terms of alternative sentencing. Within the corrections facility, individuals can partake in course and programs designed to reduce recidivism and give individuals the best chance at permanently reentering society. These programs include continuing education courses, job development and training, computer skills and treatment evaluations. Individuals also have access to transition services and a reentry program to help ensure they do not reenter the justice system. Contact the program directly for more information about specific programs or available services.
