There are no incorporated communities in Cameron Parish, so the Cameron Parish Police Jury is the formal governing body for the parish. The Police Jury is composed of eight jurors who are elected every four years.
The Police Jury’s specific responsibilities include the construction and operation of roads and bridges, drainage, fire protection, waterworks, parks and recreation, airports, hospitals, ambulance services, port commissions, libraries, health units, solid waste divisions, industrial development boards, civil defense, mosquito control, courthouse and other public buildings, sewerage districts, youth services, licenses, permits, and coastal zone management.
The Police Jury has approximately 255 full and part-time employees to support the various services provided for the parish residents.
