LAVINE is a service provided by the LCLE in cooperation with the Louisiana Sheriffs’ Association (LSA), Louisiana District Attorneys’ Association (LDAA), and the Louisiana Department of Public Safety and Corrections (DOC).

LAVINE will monitor the custody status of adult inmates in all parish jails and state prisons. By calling our LAVINE LINE (866-LAVNS-4-U) or by accessing our website at the above link, you may inquire about an offender’s status and, optionally, register to be notified upon any change to that offender’s custody status (i.e., release from jail, transfer to another facility, etc.).

LAVINE is FREE to victims who may call it ANONYMOUSLY and as often as they wish to register or to determine an inmate’s current status.
