Sabine Parish Sheriff Aaron Mitchell announced two Sergeants from the Sabine Parish Detention Center that attended the Louisiana Correctional Association Conference in Lake Charles last week.
Sgt Steve Procell and Sgt Austen Early learned about different ways narcotics are smuggled into correctional facilities, concealment of weapons, the mental health of inmates, inmates with mental illness, and officer safety.
Sheriff Mitchell said training for his correctional deputies is also a top priority. Proper care and custody of inmates results in a safer jail environment, less contraband, and hopefully a lower recidivism rate of offenders.
