The state of Louisiana has only one type of federal long-term confinement facility, which is prisons. There are two federal prisons in Louisiana. These prisons hold felons who broke federal laws while inside Louisiana state lines.
All federal prisons are operated and managed by the Federal Bureau of Prisons (FOB). The FOB is also in charge of maintaining all Louisiana federal prison inmate records. Anyone interested in running a Louisiana federal prison inmate search can visit the FOB’s website to use the inmate locator feature or contact them directly. The Federal Bureau of Prisons has a helpful website with a page for each facility with information on visitation, directions, how to send gifts and money to inmates and other details for friends and family.
The Federal Bureau of Prisons describes itself as: “Our agency was established in 1930 to provide more progressive and humane care for federal inmates, to professionalize the prison service, and to ensure consistent and centralized administration of federal prisons.”
