OPSO Code Enforcement
Ouachita Parish Code Enforcement
The Code Enforcement Department’s mission is to ensure that there are no health or safety hazards that might endanger the public in the unincorporated areas of the parish. The code enforcement deputies monitor both public and private property, commercial and residential, to eliminate hazards that could affect public safety, health, and general welfare. The parish ordinances address a wide variety of areas such as dangerous buildings, littering violations, junk cars, junky conditions, sign violations and public health violations. When a violation is verified actions are taken to ensure the violation is removed or corrected. Deputies only enforce parish ordinances and cannot enforce deed restrictions or covenants, as they are a civil agreement between a developer/homeowner association and homeowner.
