This facility’s offender phone system is provided by the offender communications system. Only offenders may initiate phone calls. If you wish to contact an offender, your options are to call 1-866-516-0115 and leave the offender a voicemail (up to 3 minutes), send a secure message via www.gettingout.com, write a letter, or schedule a visit with the offender during official visitation hours at the facility, or schedule remote video visitation.
To call you, an offender simply dials your phone number. When receiving a call, you should first hear an announcement from an automated operator, such as “You are receiving a call from [offender name], an offender at Lafayette Parish Corrections. Press one (1) to accept.” If the offender has no calling funds, and is calling you for the first time, the call will be free for a brief period of time (often less than a minute). This is to allow the offender to inform you of where he or she is, and to explain how calls work from this facility. After this short call, the offender will be placed on hold and you will be presented the opportunity to:
- Pay (via credit card) to continue the current call.
- Deposit funds for the offender to continue your call and, if there is money remaining, the offender may use the funds to make future calls to any number.
- Deposit funds to your own phone number to continue your call and, if there is money remaining, the offender may use the funds to call your number in the future, but the funds will not be available for calling other numbers.
To leave a voicemail for an offender, friends and family can now leave offenders a voice mail message up to 3 minutes for about $1.25 (may vary slightly). Just call 1-866-516-0115 and follow the prompts.
Block Future Calls
If you do not wish to receive calls from offenders, you may call 1-866-516-0115 (from a phone attached to the number that you wish to have blocked). A live operator will help prevent offenders from being able to call the number in the future.
