I strive to provide a level of service to the public that is unmatched and built on professionalism. I require courtesy, impartiality, and respect to be given by my officers which is what makes the City of Broussard and its citizens such a wonderful place to live and work.

I take great pride in serving the public, citizens, motorists, and business owners who make up the City of Broussard. I am honored to have served the city as Chief of Police for over twelve years and I look forward to being a part of all the great things the city plans to offer in the future. Chief Brannon Decou

This is not something any shop owners want to post— but we and Broussard Police Department could use your help to identify these women.

The Broussard Police Department and Magistrate Court is transitioning to an online payment portal for people to pay citation fines. While the new program is being configured, we are asking people call 337-837-6259, in order to get the required information needed for the portal. Once you have this information, you can go to our website at www.broussardpolice.com and click on the icon (see below image) that says “pay your citations online”, from there you will be sent to www.broussardcitypayments.com (hosted by ncourt.com) automatically to fill out all the info needed. We are currently accepting payments online in this manner and soon the portal will be self-sufficient to where you will not have to call in for any information as it will be integrated with our current court software so you can find your info directly. We wanted to get this access out to the public now so that we can help people comply with the stay at home and social distancing orders, while making it convenient to pay.

Broussard, April 8, 2020:
Broussard Magistrate Court that was scheduled for Thursday, April 30, 2020 at 5:30 pm, has been rescheduled for June 25, 2020 at 5:30 pm. Anyone scheduled for the April 30th court date must contact the Broussard Police Department immediately to be issued a new court date.

We have also implemented an online payment portal for those that have been issued citations to be able to pay them online instead of having to come in to the office. This portal is still in the process of being completed so in the meantime you still need to call the office to get your fine amount that is required when filling out the payment information. You can go to www.broussardpolice.com and click on the “Pay your Citations Online” icon and you will be directed automatically to the payment portal site to make the payment. Please use the portal if possible to help with social distancing and stay at home orders.

Thanks for your cooperation and please follow guidelines outlined by local authorities in reference to social distancing and stay at home orders. Thank you for your patience during these trying times, we will make it through this together.

We have received concerns about an Easter service flyer that went out this past weekend that was supposed to be at the theatre. We have spoken to the church and they are NOT having this service in person it will be ONLINE ONLY. Thanks for your concerns and we have addressed this ahead of time to prevent any large gathering of people.

Many of you may have received a mailer this week that advertised an Easter Sunday service to be held by one of our local churches at Celebrity Theatres Broussard 10. It has been confirmed that this mailer was printed prior to the Stay at Home Order, and this service has been moved to one that will be online. There will be no public service held at Celebrity Theater.

On Thursday, April 2, 2020 at approximately 9 P.M., The Broussard Police Department responded to an armed robbery in progress at a residence on 3rd Street in Broussard. A suspect-vehicle description was given of a grey Audi-4 door car and within minutes, officers were able to intercept the vehicle fleeing the area of the crime. The vehicle was stopped in the 200 block of S. Morgan Ave and contained five suspects that also matched the clothing and physical descriptions given by the victims (Three adults and two juveniles #1 & #2).

The investigation revealed that two juvenile victim/suspects (#3 & #4) were attempting to sell stolen firearms via a social media app. The ‘buyers’ (the five suspects in the Audi) arrived to purchase the weapon whereupon three subjects exited the Audi and pulled semi-automatic handguns from their waistbands, on the victims, committing an armed robbery. The three robbed the two juveniles, taking two additional guns.

A search warrant was conducted on the Audi which produced a total of five semi-automatic handguns, three of which were reported stolen, including one that they obtained from the victims in the robbery. One was reported stolen out of Youngsville, one out of Lafayette parish and one out of Mississippi. See photo of guns recovered attached.

Confessions were obtained leading to the arrest of the following and what they were charged with:
Xzabua Arceneaux (b/m 18 YOA from Duson) – Armed Robbery, 3-counts of Possession of a stolen firearm and contributing to the delinquency of a minor.

Tyjous Faulk (b/m 18 YOA from Scott) - Armed Robbery, 3-counts of Possession of a stolen firearm and contributing to the delinquency of a minor.

Trevor Kaigler Jr (19 YOA from Maurice) - Armed Robbery, 3-counts of Possession of a stolen firearm and contributing to the delinquency of a minor.

Juvenile Suspect #1 (from Lafayette)- Armed Robbery, 3-counts of Possession of a stolen firearm and violation of COVID-19 Paris hwide Curfew

Juvenile Suspect #2 (from Rayne) - Armed Robbery, 3-counts of Possession of a stolen firearm and violation of COVID-19 Parish wide Curfew

Juvenile Victim/Suspect #3 – Illegal possession of stolen firearms

Juvenile Victim/Suspect #4 – Illegal possession of stolen firearms

Additional Curfew Enforcement Arrests:

While working this incident, officers with Broussard Police also located two additional juveniles out after curfew—unrelated to the armed robbery. They ran when they saw the marked patrol unit driving past them on Loul Street. Officers caught them a couple streets over on Knight Street as they were hiding behind some bushes. They were then taken into custody and arrested for the curfew violation.

Broussard Police Chief Brannon Decou is taking a strong stance against curfew violations and is doing his part to keep the citizens of this community safe during these trying times.

Incredible job tonight, Broussard PD! Thank you for keeping traffic flowing and organized after the fireworks show. You guys did a great job!
Huge shout out to Sgt. Daigle in assisting my family and I today at Albertson's. Thank you for your promptness, eagerness and compassion. Huge shout out to the Dispatcher and non emergency line operator, ya'll are awesome!! My family backs the blue, and we will always have Broussard Police Department six!! Thank you for your amazing officers.
Speeders on deer meadow I sit outside and watch traffic and pray no one gets hit buy a speeding vehicle it will take someone getting killed are seriously hurt to slow people down
Can the Broussard Police do anything about the number of people entering Walmart and Home Depot? Can store managers be forced to limit the number of people entering the store at one time? Academy of Ls Avenue limits the number of people entering the store to 25 at a time.
Hello, is there also a Brossard, Quebec Police Department? OR Bienville?? Fraud was perpetrated against me by Bruce Cohen, address; 107a 6250 Ave Bienville, Brossard Quebec. This is the information given to seller of goods charged to my credit card. The Parcel is at Canada Post office (which location I do not know) ready for pick up or delivery Monday, I am hoping to stop and reverse delivery back to seller who in turn will credit my credit card. AND file charges against this person. Thank you anyone for your assistance, time and efforts.
LOST: Black and white female terrier mix, about 25-30 pounds, 13 years old, Answers to Beth. Went missing today in the Broussard area, near South Morgan and Albertson Parkway.
Had problems installing my grand baby’s car seat in vehicle the correct way. Called BPD and Officer Daigle came to correct the problem and install it properly. Thank y’all so much.
My own personal opinion of the Broussard Police Dept. They are professional, pleasant to deal with, no buddy system, honest, easy to talk to, understandable, respectable, handles their job, returns calls, explains everything into details for you to understand why or what is going on, addresses issues & concerns and was available to speak to instantly like there is an open door policy. I truly cannot say enough good things of my experience with the Broussard Police Dept..
Saw Broussard Police in Albertson's parking lot today. If you were checking for people parking in Handy Cap parking spaces and ticketing them. I want to say Well Done! I see so many parking in handy cap spaces that are not handy cap, it is so aggravating to see people that really need to be close to store and they can't because of lazy people.
Love you all for your commitment to your community . Great job. Always praying for your safety.
You guys rock, stay safe. 💙
You guys are rocking it.🗡️💙
