On Wednesday, the Jefferson Parish Sheriff’s Department will open a new Third District Station at 6001 Leo Kerner Lafitte Pkwy in Marrero.
The JPSO’s previous Third District Station was inside a building that was borrowed from Jefferson Parish Public Schools.
The new location was selected in anticipation of future development in that area. According to the JPSO, it’s also in one of the remaining green spaces included in the parish’s master plans for residential development.
The new facility will station officers on its second floor and is equipped with a backup generator, kitchen, and showers in the event of a hurricane or flood.
