2020 Graduations Are Scheduled

Will the Class of 2020 graduate in a normal ceremony? That question has been a major topic of conversation in Washington Parish for the past two months.

Court dates have been rescheduled

If you were scheduled to appear in Washington Parish Misdemeanor Court or had a traffic ticket date in March, April or May, 2020, please report to the 9-1-1 Building behind the Sheriff’s Office/Jail in Franklinton (also known as the “old Franklinton Police Department”) to get your new court date. You can report any time between 8:30 a.m.
