In the USA, crime laboratories, which use forensic science to examine evidence, may be publicly or privately operated. Private labs typically do not respond to crime scenes to collect evidence. Most states have their own crime labs. Our crime lab listings show all private and public facilities in Louisiana.

People can help solve crimes anonymously by providing information and assistance to authorities through the use of Crime Stoppers programs. This allows people to stay out of the direct investigative process, which can be a deterrent to participation. We show the Crime Stoppers programs in the state of Louisiana, alphabetically.

Jails, unlike federally- or state-run prisons, are operated locally, by cities and counties. These are short term facilities, and hold misdemeanants sentenced to terms of one year or less, or inmates awaiting trial on the local level. Our data shows that the 10 jails below are the largest, by average inmate population, in Louisiana.
