Opelousas law enforcement leaders will come together later this year to ask for money to expand the city jail, but Mayor Reginald Tatum cautioned that funds might not be available this go-round, according to a report by KATC-TV.

A lack of space in the city jail means the eight full-time deputies and 16 reserve deputies in the marshal’s office have no place to put anyone they arrest on the more than 400 outstanding warrants from city court, Marshall Paul Mouton said.

“We have plenty warrants, but our city jail is chock-a-block,” Mouton said.
