Washington Parish Curfew Ends

Washington Parish Sheriff Randy “Country” Seal has suspended the parish wide curfew effective May 1, 2020.

Even though the curfew is lifted, the Sheriff's offices in both Franklinton and Bogalusa will remain closed to the public until mid-May in accordance with Governor Edwards’ extended stay at home directive. Meanwhile, if you have a need to speak with one of our office personnel, call (985) 839-3434, and the operator will direct your call to the appropriate employee. As always, our patrol deputies and detectives continue to patrol the parish and conduct investigations and our jail officers continue to monitor all activities in the jail.

“I am so grateful for all those who have cooperated with measures taken during the COVID-19 event,” stated Sheriff Seal. “Although the virus threat has not ended, we are making great progress as a state and nation and I am confident Louisiana will be re-opening for business soon. I caution all of our residents to continue to practice safe hygiene habits, including social distancing, no hand shaking, wearing face coverings as appropriate and limiting the size of group gatherings. Please be assured of my continued prayers for the safety of all.”
