Investigative Services consists of three Criminal Investigators, one of whom also functions as a Juvenile Aid Officer.
Investigative personnel follow up on criminal cases developed by the uniform force. These include, but are not limited to homicide, robbery, burglary, arson, assault, sexual assault, narcotics, and crimes against children including child abuse & neglect cases. Investigators also work closely with members of the Major Felony Crimes Task Force, an enforcement arm of the District Attorney's Office.
There is always an “on-call” investigator available to respond to crime scenes and serious incidents including motor vehicle accidents involving life threatening injuries or fatalities.
Sheriff's Investigators, one of which is certified through the Office of Fire Protection and Control works hand-in-hand with the County's Fire Investigation Team. These individuals offer their time & expertise and are affiliated with various fire departments throughout the county. They volunteer hundreds of hours yearly investigating fires, in addition to the numerous hours they serve within their own departments where they are all very active. These team members also assist in providing information about topics such as fire behavior, arson awareness, scene preservation, and fire prevention.
If you have information about a crime, you are encouraged to contact the Sheriff's Office.
