A Great Place to Call Home

City Marshal

Welcome to the Pineville City Marshal's Office web page.  We hope the information provided here will be of interest and assistance to you.  It is a tremendous honor for me to serve as your Pineville City Marshal.  As your Marshal, I am often asked, "What does the marshal's office do?"

The Pineville City Marshal's Office executes the mandates of the Pineville City Court.  In other words, we enforce the orders issued by the Court.  Deputy Marshals' duties include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Securing the Pineville City Court including its building and the people inside
  • Serving civil papers and writs such as eviction notices, judgements and subpoenas
  • Serving and executing warrants
  • Executing seizures
  • Transporting prisoners

Although our primary function is the business of the Court, Deputy Marshals can make traffic stops, arrests and conduct investigations of offenses/violations committed within our jurisdiction.  For the Pineville City Marshal's Office, that jurisdiction is Wards 9, 10 and 11 of Rapides Parish.  Basically, it encompasses all of Rapides Parish north of the Red River.

Be assured, when conducting our duties, our Deputy Marshals will always demonstrate the highest level of professionalism and treat citizens with courtesy and respect and, in so doing, will make every effort to earn your trust and respect.

If you have any questions or suggestions as to how we can better serve you, please contact me or any member of my staff.  We will be glad to assist you in any way we can.
