We are most grateful that you have visited this page and we encourage you to also download our Lincoln Parish Sheriff’s Office App for Android and iPhone users as well.
This web page and the APP will include pertinent information regarding our Office and the many Divisions available to serve you, the citizens of Lincoln Parish. This site will also provide you the opportunity to submit tips (written and photo) to help solve or prevent crime in our Parish. Among the features you will find the ability to sign up for additional residential patrols while on vacation, request neighborhood watch information, track inmate information, and pay your taxes and fines on line. You may also enroll yourself or a loved one in the “How ‘R’ You?” program which monitors our senior citizen’s well-being with a phone call every day. In addition you can learn about our victim assistance program, receive amber alerts and find out about potential employment opportunities with our Office.
These are just a few of the many ways to stay informed with our Office, and we encourage you to please let us know how we might better inform and serve you in the future.
I, along with all our Deputies, want to assure you that we will continually strive to provide you with the professional and efficient law enforcement you deserve.

The Lincoln Parish Sheriff’s Department has been made aware of calls that residents are reporting, having been received today, during which the caller identifies themselves as deputy sheriffs with the Lincoln Parish Sheriff’s Department. The callers are reportedly advising persons that they have missed court dates and are demanding that the individual travel to the court house.
This IS A SCAM. Please do not fall for this. The suspect party is going so far as to spoof their calling number as that of the Lincoln Parish Sheriff’s Department, ultimately leading the recipient of the call to believe that they are indeed speaking to someone from the Lincoln Parish Sheriff’s Department. This SCAM, if carried out, will ultimately result in the scammer eliciting monies from the respondent.
Please rest assured that the sheriff’s department makes personal contact in matters such as this, along with mail outs. The overwhelming majority of scams of this nature originate from overseas.
