THE RETURN OF THE NEW IBERIA POLICE DEPARTMENT
The New Iberia Police Department officially began patrolling the streets of New Iberia on Sunday July 1st, 2018 at 6:00 AM.
The newly formed police department was reinstated after city residents approved a measure to create a funding source in 2017. For nearly a decade prior, law enforcement was provided for city residents through a contract with the Iberia Parish Sheriff's Department.
The department was officially sworn in on June 19th on the front steps of the New Iberia City Hall.
