It is, provided you do what you're supposed to. You must first load the
LaplaceTransform AddOn :

In[1]:=
<<Calculus`LaplaceTransform`

In[2]:=
LaplaceTransform[Sin[t], t, s]

Out[2]=
1/(1 + s^2)

If you called LaplaceTransform before loading the AddOn (in the same
session), be sure to remove it before calling it again in order to avoid
shadowing problems:

In[3]:=
Remove[LaplaceTransform]
