Sheriff Aaron Mitchell reports Sabine Parish Detention Center Sergeants John Potter, Austen Early, Steve Procell, and Kyle Roberts attended training at the Louisiana State Police Headquarters in Baton Rouge. Sergeants learned the latest procedures with Automated Fingerprint Identification System (AFIS) and Combined DNA Index System (CODIS).
AFIS is a database that has the ability to classify, match, and store fingerprints and palm prints and contains prints from both criminal and applicant records.
CODIS is a national DNA information repository maintained by the FBI that allows state and local crime laboratories to store and compare DNA profiles from crime-scene evidence and convicted offenders.
Fingerprints and DNA are taken from arrestees booked into the Sabine Parish Detention Center. These are entered into the AFIS and CODIS databases respectively.
Sheriff Mitchell said all Sabine Parish Sheriff Deputies receive the latest training available to fully perform their daily duties.
