John F. DeRosier, District Attorney
The Calcasieu Parish District Attorney's Office is always available to you, the people of Calcasieu Parish. We offer a wide variety of programs and services. Currently, the District Attorney's Office employs over 100 people who are ready, willing, and able to assist you. This website was put together in an effort to inform the community of the many programs we utilize and the methods we employ to help reduce the crime rate. We prosecute to the fullest extent when deemed necessary. This includes the prosecution of violent offenders and repeat offenders. We also strive to reach first offenders of non-violent crimes who go astray. It is important, if possible, to help them realize their mistakes and point them in the right direction. One of our main goals is to save our youth and offer positive reinforcement. When making decisions, we have the best interest of the community in mind. We are constantly at work for you and dedicate ourselves to the improvement of our community. We invite you to call the District Attorney's Office for assistance or to offer input and/or suggestions to help us better serve you.
