NEW IBERIA, La. - Effective Thursday, August 5, 2021, the New Iberia Police Department (NIPD) has reinstated its COVID-19 protocols.

NIPD will restrict one masked person at a time in its lobby to obtain copies of previously documented incidents. The public needing to file a police report are asked to call the non-emergency dispatch telephone number, 337-369-2306.

Officers will take these non-emergency complaints over the phone, such as those that don’t require an investigation on the scene or the collection of evidence. NIPD will continue to provide an emergency response, in-progress crimes, and vehicle crashes where there is an immediate threat to life, health, or property.

This is an effort to ensure social distancing and to help slow the spread of the COVID-19 virus.
