Alcorn, Corinth to share data

CORINTH – Compatible data management systems in the new Alcorn County regional correctional facility will give Alcorn County deputies and Corinth police officers access to common systems they use frequently.
The Board of Supervisors last week approved purchase of a system from Tyler Techologies for the county that dovetails with systems the city already uses.
The Corinth Police Department will join the Alcorn County Sheriff’s Office in the new justice center complex that includes justice court, E-911 and emergency management.
The data system puts all the forms deputies and officers use regularly right at their fingertips, said Chad Roberts, warden for the new facility.
It simplifies tracking evidence, belongings of individuals who are arrested, inkless fingerprinting and much more
“It grades each individual fingerprint and won’t let you do another one until you do one that is satisfactory,” Roberts said.
Inputting information at the scene of an accident also becomes easier since the system aids immediate upload of photos from the accident and electronically reconstructs the accident.
Other parts of the system help with day-to-day jail operations such as tracking incident reports, electronically filing inmate medical records and monitoring inmate counts to receive payment from each agency that sends prisoners to the county.
“This system does all kinds of stuff that will help us, and we’re fortunate that Corinth already had the fingerprinting part and we can get the benefit of that too,” Roberts said.
