Orleans Parish Sheriff Susan Hutson thanks OPSO deputies & 218 officers from 17 agencies who supported Carnival parade route public safety

Mobile booking location & IPC processes 350+ arrests for gun, drug and theft charges

NEW ORLEANS - 02-23-2023

Orleans Parish Sheriff Susan A. Hutson extended her gratitude to OPSO deputies and those from local and regional agencies that had a presence along the parade routes throughout Carnival Season. Throughout the season 70-140 OPSO deputies and a total of 218 officers from partner agencies were assigned to parade route public safety over the course of the 10 parade days.

"It was a great collaboration on the part of many different governmental agencies, community organizations and carnival Krewes," said Sheriff Susan A. Hutson. "It shows what we as a city and state are capable of when we work together to achieve a common goal for the benefit of our communities."

On any given day 120-200+ OPSO deputies, reserve deputies and support staff supported Carnival efforts by directly working parade route public safety, the mobile booking unit in the French Quarter, doing mounted or motorcycle patrol or manning our Operation Lost Kids Zone. In addition, about 30 OPSO deputies provided election security support for the special election in the 93rd representative district last Saturday.

"I'm extremely grateful for the support we received from our partner agencies, and I'm especially proud of the men and women of the Orleans Parish Sheriff's office for stepping up to support our community," Hutson said. "All of these officers stood alongside NOPD with pride to help maintain peace among the massive crowds, put smiles on the faces of parade goers and help keep the good times rolling."

Over the course of the Carnival season, there were 86 total bookings at the Mobile Communications and alternate Intake and Processing Compound (IPC) Unit in the French Quarter this year, up significantly from the 22 individuals booked at the location in 2022. The charges processed included illegal carrying of weapons (76), drug arrests (4), theft (3), battery (2) and domestic (1). A total of 70 more were arrested and processed at IPC at the Orleans Justice Center for gun related charges from Feb. 16-21. In all, 382 people were processed on charges across the two-week period.

"We are grateful that our efforts and presence were able to prevent some possible crimes from happening. It took an immense effort behind the scenes to allow the city's most amazing tradition to go forward and we look forward to future opportunities to show up whenever our city calls."

Orleans Parish Sheriff’s Office requests bids for new jail management system and other operational improvements

NEW ORLEANS - 12-21-2022

The Orleans Parish Sheriff's Office today issued three requests for proposals (RFP) to upgrade three systems that are essential to efficient operations of the jail. The agency is seeking to overhaul its jail management system, case management system and resident grievance, commissary and tablet system.

OPSO is seeking an automated resident information management system to perform comprehensive jail functions like managing resident booking, processing and classification information and storing medical history. An updated case management system will serve to automate the processes used to track investigations of residents and employees, which have been done manually for the past decade.

A third RFP is seeking bids for systems that will serve the resident population, specifically the grievance and commissary system. In a first for the Sheriff's Office, that same RFP asks bidders to propose a system or program for introducing the use of tablets for residents as a reward for good behavior and to allow for video visitation, education and other community programs.

"The Sheriff's Office is long overdue for an upgrade to the jail management system, which is rooted in 1980s technology," said Sheriff Susan Hutson. "We need to overhaul our systems to become a more intelligent jail with current technology. This will make our staff more efficient when performing their duties, improve our public data sharing, and better protect sensitive medical and personal information."

The current jail management system is linked to computer systems at the Orleans Parish Criminal District Court and Civil District Courts. Its data is also routinely shared with the New Orleans City Council, jail monitors and other city entities.

The three RFPs and the accompanying functional requirements are posted on the Central Bidding website ( Bids for all three RFPs are due in late January.
