Approximately 80 law enforcement officers and criminal justice personnel from numerous agencies and jurisdictions across the State attended the 2-day training class held at the Cypress Bend Conference Center on Toledo Bend Lake this week.
Deputy Chief Tracy Harpster (retired) was the instructor for the training class. Harpster has been a law enforcement officer in Ohio since 1984 and received his Master’s Degree from the University of Cincinnati in 2006. Harpster began the research of analyzing the 911 calls in homicide cases. Harpster’s research has been used to investigate well over 2200 homicides.
Sheriff Aaron Mitchell and Chief Deputy Brad Walker greatly thank Deputy Chief Harpster for traveling to Sabine Parish to teach the class. Chief Deputy Walker noted that analyzing the 911 call is an essential tool when investigating homicides. Harpster is very knowledgeable and kept the class engaged during the training. We expect Harpster to come back in the future and teach the class again.
