A Message From The Sheriff


When I took office as Sheriff for Iberia Parish in 2008, one of my goals has been to provide citizens of Iberia Parish with a higher standard of law enforcement. Since then, the Iberia Parish Sheriff's Office has implemented several new technologies and tools with the purpose of providing residents within Iberia Parish the protection they deserve. A few of these tools are as follows:


* RUVIS (Reflective Ultra Violet Imaging System) - used to identify latent finger prints using ultra violet light.It does not require any type of powder that used to be traditionally used; instead, crime scene detectives are able to locate and collect finger prints much faster and from a larger area.

* Cyber Crimes Unit - who, with the help from the latest technologies, are able to recover forensic evidence from computers involved in crimes.

* FLIR (Forward Looking Infrared-red) - these units allow deputies to search for individuals in complete darkness who are either lost and need to be rescued; or, help deputies observe any illegal activity without being detected.

* Serial Number Reconstruction - device helps detectives

The Iberia Parish Sheriff's Office has also added new specialized units to assist the patrol and investigative divisions involving specific duties. One of these units is the Iberia Parish Sheriff's Office Tracking Team. The Tracking Team was assembled with the intent to aid investigators in the search of missing persons such as lost hunters or children in rural areas. The Tracking Team also assists with the search of fleeing suspects involved in criminal activities. The team members were initially trained by instructors with the United States Customs and Border Patrol tracking team. Border Patrol agents pass on information that they use on an everyday basis in the field to deputies with the Iberia Parish Sheriff's Office Tracking Team.

A crime scene unit was also formed during my administration. This unit also assists investigators with ongoing criminal investigations and is a crucial part of solving a case. The crime scene unit is staffed with very qualified personnel trained specifically in crime scene investigations. They are also outfitted with the latest in technology.

All of these new technologies and personnel I have added to the Iberia Parish Sheriff's Office has made the Sheriff's Office more efficient and produced a higher percentage of solved crimes.
