City of Kenner Jail

The City of Kenner Jail houses up to 64 prisoners for misdemeanor offenses.  Officers who are assigned to the jail monitor the surveillance cameras in the jail and around the entire police complex at all times.

Correctional officers are certified in Peace Officer Standards and Training (P.O.S.T.), meaning that they are eligible for state supplemental pay.  The correctional peace officers search inmates, obtain  information for booking forms, dispense food and other necessities to inmates, collect and store inmates' property, collect bonds, coordinate visitation of inmates, maintain communication with other law enforcement agencies and maintain extensive computer work in searching databases and records for criminal histories.  The officers can also fingerprint prisoners electronically by using a computer program called the Automated Fingerprint Identification System (A.F.I.S.).  Individuals in custody place their hands on a screen, which scans their fingerprints.

The Drug Court Testing Program administered here allows first offenders to take random drug tests up to three times per week in lieu of a jail sentence.  The City of Kenner Jail also fingerprints citizens who are required to have their fingerprints documented for a minor fee.
