Community and Youth
Community Services Division
“Our work here has so many different avenues which leads us to serve in many capacities, whether it’s working with senior citizens, families in need, or the children,” said Chief Merry Byers.
The division works closely with the Patrol Division to receive reports and feedback from their operations to identify potential needs in the parish.
“On some occasions, the patrol deputies may let us know that there is a senior citizen who needs assistance and we can offer one of our senior citizens services to them,” said Byers.
There are many programs offered by the Community Services Division for senior citizens. The “Are You Ok” program is an automated phone service that contacts senior citizens each day at a designated time. The purpose of the program is to ensure the well-being of the citizen. When a call made goes answered, another attempt to reach the citizen happens shortly after, if that attempt is unsuccessful the Community Services Division receives notification and the Patrol Division will send out a deputy to the residence to conduct a welfare check of the citizen.
The Community Services Division of the NPSO is dedicated to serving the citizens of Natchitoches Parish. If you would like to participate in any of our citizen programs, contact the division at (318) 238-7550. If you would like more information on senior citizen services, contact Dep. Moreau at (318) 357-7802.

Patrol and Communications
The Natchitoches Parish Sheriff’s Office serves the citizens of Natchitoches Parish in many different areas of responsibility, with each having a unique focus on the overall mission of the office.
Perhaps the most visible division of the NPSO is the Patrol Division. The Patrol Division is responsible for the immediate and initial response to citizens’ calls for service by the NPSO.
In addition to responding to citizen calls, the Patrol Division travels on every road and highway in the parish during daily, and nightly, patrols. The result of the constant patrols provides a visible presence of the NPSO in every community.
The successful outcome of the actions performed by the NPSO deputies relies on their ability to receive, interpret and provide timely and effective communications. Whether the Patrol Division is responding to an emergency on a rural roadside or the Community Services Division providing the ‘Are You OK” program to senior citizens, the ability to effectively communicate internally or with the citizens is essential.
The NPSO Communications Division is responsible for managing the communications capabilities of the NPSO and also manages the Emergency 911 dispatch which receives citizens’ calls for emergency service.
Criminal Investigations Division
The Criminal Investigations Division of the Natchitoches Parish Sheriff’s Office investigates criminal acts that occur outside of the jurisdictions of the municipalities of the parish. The division also provides investigative support and assistance, when requested, to other local, state and federal law enforcement agencies.
High Tech Crime Unit
In 2010, the NPSO established the High Tech Crime Unit, which was formed to investigate online crimes against children. Later, the unit expanded and now covers an expansive list of responsibilities. This dynamic unit continues to adapt to contemporary technologies to protect citizens who utilize electronic and social media in their everyday activities.
Task Force Division
In an ongoing and diligent effort to stop the flow of illegal drugs in Natchitoches Parish, the Natchitoches Multi-Jurisdictional Drug Task Force was formed.
The Task Force is comprised of ten members from both the Natchitoches Parish Sheriff’s Office and the Natchitoches Police Department.

Furthermore, within 21 days of release or relocation, the offender must notify the community including every resident within a 1/3 mile radius of the residence inside the city limits of a municipality and within a 1 mile radius elsewhere in the parish. Furthermore, they must also notify the superintendent of the school district and the landlord of the residence they are residing.
