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.
After 15 years of service to the citizens of Calcasieu Parish, District Attorney John DeRosier will retire at the end of this year.
“This world-wide pandemic has caused me to take stock of what's really important in life. I've taken this pause in life to consider and appreciate all the accomplishments of our office over the last fifteen years and how we've improved public safety throughout our parish,” said District Attorney John DeRosier. “Given the tremendous successes of our office over the last 15 years, I've decided to retire at the end of my current term. 2020 should be the year of ushering in a new generation of leadership. I'm excited about the prospect of new, bold ideas going forward.”
A full video of District Attorney John DeRosier’s announcement will be available on the Calcasieu Parish District Attorney’s Facebook page later today.
