Debate Surrounding Orleans Parish Prison Continues


(08/28/2013)
The third phase of a new inmate housing facility, part of the New Orleans Parish Prison, will soon be constructed on a piece of land owned by the City of New Orleans. Mayor Mitch Landrieu recently agreed to the construction project, which will house women, youths, sick and mentally ill inmates. This new housing center will help keep these inmates separate from those contained at the Orleans Parish Prison.
