All Plaquemine City Police patrol units are fully equipped with all law enforcement equipment, including digital cameras to tape interaction of traffic stops and suspects, and state-of-the-art computers that provide detailed information on suspects and vehicles with the click of a button. These computers help officers know what situations they might be faced with in approaching vehicles or suspects. The department also has several unmarked police units.
It also maintains a boat for water rescues or law enforcement needs, a sophisticated mug shot database that does analysis and facial recognition processes, satellite radio and phone equipment and Lazer Shot training equipment, which allows officer training using lazer guns in public settings, such as City Hall. The Lazer Shot system will also be offered at community events for shooting practice.
The Police Department also has access to the new Mobile Command Center, a $350,000 emergency command center that allows numerous emergency response and law enforcement agencies to communicate with each other, provides a closed circuit TV, computers, weather station, and other equipment. The Center will be shared among Iberville Parish law enforcement and emergency response agencies.
The Plaquemine Police Department handles all law enforcement issues within the city limits of Plaquemine.
