Scotlandville Substation was established in 1974, to service the northern portion of the parish, which covers roughly 75 square miles. The boundaries are from Plank Road to the east, the Mississippi River to the west, Florida Boulevard to the south, and the East Feliciana parish line to the north. The Sub-Station is also located in the heart of Scotlandville, which houses Southern University (www.subr.edu), one of the two major universities in Baton Rouge.
Scotlandville Sub-Station is composed of 1 Commander, 1 Secretary, 16 uniformed Deputies, consisting of 4 shifts with 4 Deputies per shift. The Sub-Station also has 14 Reserve Deputies that periodically patrol to help assist with the increased number of calls, which is estimated to be around 650 calls per month.
The Deputies are responsible for answering calls in a prompt and professional manner when called upon. Deputies also assist the Warrant Division with issuing misdemeanor and felony warrants that are issued within the zoned area. The number of warrants served is estimated to be 300 warrants per month, resulting in the capture and booking of some of Baton Rouge's most wanted criminals. Due to the recent catastrophe of Hurricane Katrina, the FEMA trailer park (Renaissance Village) has been located within the Sub-Stations patrol area. The Deputies are responsible for making periodic checks on the park, to insure that all residents and FEMA property are safe and secure.
