Unlike the Louisiana Department of Corrections, where inmates are sent once convicted of a crime and sentenced to a period of more than a year, the Caldwell Parish Jail System is populated by short-term offenders; those who have just been arrested and awaiting to be bonded out by friends or family, those who cannot afford or get bailed and are awaiting trial, or those who have already been convicted of a crime and sentenced to a term of less than one year. Many of the latter inmates become ‘workers’, who can reduce their sentence by performing jail maintenance or working in the kitchen. An upside to being a worker is they also get paid a small stipend so when they get released, they have a few dollars in their pocket.
When an inmate is convicted and sentenced to a year or more, they are transferred to the Louisiana Department of Corrections or the Federal Bureau of Prisons.
Inmates that are convicted of a misdemeanor and/or sentenced to less than one year of a state crime serve their time in the Caldwell Parish Correctional Center.
Illegal immigrants convicted of a state or federal crime will first do their time, then may be transferred into ICE custody for deportation.
