Sabine Parish Sheriff Aaron Mitchell wanted to inform the public of new courthouse security measures implemented by the Sabine Parish Police Jury.
Effective the week of Feb. 20, security at the Sabine Parish Courthouse located at 400 South Capitol Street in Many will be enhanced as follows:
-All visitors shall be required to enter and exit the courthouse through the glass sliding doors facing South Capitol Street.
-Sabine Parish Sheriff Deputies will be stationed at the Capitol Street entrance to operate a security checkpoint.
-Every courthouse visitor will be subject to a security screening for weapons and/or dangerous instrumentalities.
-Visitors are prohibited from carrying any bag, purse, package, briefcase, or other closed container into the courthouse.
-All courthouse doors other than the Capitol Street entrance will be closed to the public.
Sheriff Mitchell asks everyone for their patience and understanding as the Police Jury enacts the new, safer, and modern courthouse security procedures.
