Crime Stoppers




As part of our continuing effort to move our Police Department forward, we have established this user-friendly website. This link will enhance the lines of communication between the citizens of Ponchatoula and their Police Department. Citizens may also register confidentially for Family Watchdog, a free program that notifies you via email if a registered sex offender moves within your area.

The mission of the Ponchatoula Police Department is to partner with the community, so as to protect life and property, to understand and serve the needs of the city’s neighborhoods and citizens and to improve the quality of life by maintaining order, resolving problems and the apprehension of criminals in a manner consistent with the law.
