The Livonia Police Department is a municipal police agency located in the town of Livonia, Louisiana. The department patrols an area of approximately 2.4 square miles (6.2 km2) in this rural town located in southern Pointe Coupee Parish, Louisiana. The town's population is approximately 1,339 (2000 census).

The head of this agency is an elected official, with the position currently held by Chief of Police Brad Joffrion.[1] The department has five full time officers and two part time officers.[2] The agency currently has two police stations, both located along Louisiana Highway 78, just north of U.S. Route 190. The department's main office is located at 3111 LA Highway 78, Livonia, LA 70755.

The department's main area of responsibility is law enforcement and community service within the corporate limits of the Town of Livonia. Its officers are however, occasionally tasked to assist other area police agencies such as the Pointe Coupee Parish Sheriff's Office, nearby Fordoche Police Department, the Louisiana State Police, and Louisiana Wildlife & Fisheries. The Livonia Police Department has a very strong traffic enforcement presence along US-190, with at least one K-9 drug enforcement unit recently placed into service.

Patrol vehicles[edit]

The main patrol vehicle used by this department is the Chevrolet Tahoe.

Duty weapons[edit]
