The Chitimacha Tribal Police Department’s mission is to safeguard lives and property of all residents of the Chitimacha Indian Reservation, while preserving their constitutional rights. Various responsibilities correspond with this mission.
All officers will make these departmental responsibilities their own and will not allow personal feelings, animosities, prejudices, or personal relationships to influence their decisions.
All officers will diligently and courteously carry out their duties and responsibilities and take pride in the services they provide.
The Chitimacha Tribal Police Department is a Community Oriented department offering law enforcement services 24/7 and operating with 14 full-time P.O.S.T. certified officers—One Chief of Police, One Captain—Administrative Officer and Communications Supervisor, Six Patrol Officers, One Juvenile/D.A.R.E. Officer, and Five Communications Officers. These 14 officers have a combined total of approximately 214 years of experience in various law enforcement fields. The police department also has six police reserve officers.
All tribal police officers are cross-deputized with the St. Mary Parish Sheriff’s Office and four officers hold Special Law Enforcement Commissions with the Bureau of Indian Affairs which allows them to enforce Federal Laws on the Chitimacha Indian Reservation.
The Chitimacha Police Department has the “Silent Witness Program” where citizens can make anonymous calls to a dedicated phone line (337-923-4205) to report any suspicious or unusual activities or give information on suspected criminal activity or unsolved crimes.
