Connecting with Inmates at
Lafayette Parish Corrections
Welcome to your source for everything you need to communicate with your incarcerated friend or loved one.
Our facility uses the communications services provided through GettingOut by Telmate. On this page, you’ll find all the information you’ll need to stay connected.
Before you can communicate with inmates at this facility, you must first verify your identity.
You will need to confirm your identity through the Telmate Verified program before you can accept inmate phone calls. Telmate verification helps ensure the safety of you and your inmate contact by aiding in the elimination of fraud and extortion. Choose one of these 2 methods to verify your account:
- Make a deposit: You will be verified when you make your first deposit to an inmate or telephone number
- Create a visit account: When you create your video visit account, you’ll be asked some questions to verify your identity.
Phone Calls & Voicemail
Only offenders may initiate phone calls. To call you, an offender simply dials your phone number. When receiving a call, you’ll first hear an announcement from an automated operator; “You are receiving a call from [offender name], an offender at Lafayette Parish Corrections. Press one (1) to accept.”
If the offender has no funds in his account, and is calling you for the first time, the call will be free for a brief period of time (often less than a minute). This is to allow the offender to inform you of where he or she is, and to explain how calls work from this facility. After this short call, the offender will be placed on hold and you will be presented the opportunity to:
- Pay (via credit card) to continue the current call.
- Deposit funds for the offender to continue your call and, if there is money remaining, the offender may use the funds to make future calls to any number.
- Deposit funds to your own phone number to continue your call and, if there is money remaining, the offender may use the funds to call your number in the future, but the funds will not be available for calling other numbers.
If you wish to contact an offender, you can call 1-866-516-0115 and leave them a voicemail (up to 3 minutes), or use one of the other communications methods listed below.
Blocking Future Calls
If you do not wish to receive calls from offenders, simply call 1-866-516-0115 from the phone number that you wish to have blocked. A live operator will help prevent offenders from being able to call that number in the future.
At Lafayette Parish Corrections, communication is more than just phone calls.
We provide a number of ways to keep in contact with an inmate. GettingOut at Lafayette Parish Corrections allows you to send and receive secure messages, share photos, and video visit from your home. And with our Android and iOS apps, you can send messages and make deposits on the go. See the list below for all that GettingOut has to offer.

Termination of visit/loss of visiting privileges:
Visiting privileges may be denied, suspended or restricted upon the following: security and safety requirements; disruptive conduct of the offender or visitor; or abuse of the visiting privileges by the offender or visitor.
Inappropriate actions on the part of a visitor or offender may result in a temporary or permanent loss of that person’s visiting privileges. Disruptive behavior by offenders and/or visitors or violations of any of the rules shall be cause for termination of visiting privileges. The visiting room staff/security staff will have the discretion of giving one warning for minor violations of the visiting rules but must report any further disruption.
