Criminal Investigations

The Criminal Investigations Division (CID) is responsible for the follow-up investigation of all criminal offenses reported to the sheriff's office by the public and other agencies. Felony crimes are given the most attention by this division.  These cases consist of Sexual Assault (Rape, Fondling, etc.), Larcenies, Robberies, Burglaries (Burglary of Dwelling, Commercial Building), Arson, Assault Offenses (Aggravated Assaults (including Domestic Violence), Embezzlement, Motor Vehicle Thefts, Felony Narcotic Offenses (Possessions/Sale), and Human Trafficking just to name a few.  Most of the misdemeanor cases are worked as far as possible by the patrol officer as he/she takes the initial complaint.

THE INVESTIGATIVE PROCESS

Once a uniformed deputy takes the initial criminal complaint, the officer follows-up the case as far as time permits given the first two hours are the most important to solving the case.  The Investigators then conduct the follow-up investigation. Investigators also prepare affidavits for arrest warrants, search warrants, interview victims, witnesses, and suspects, liaison with other agencies, both local, state and Federal, and also perform many other related duties. 

In as much, the Investigators also prepare their case(s) for the court.  This involves several hours of putting the case together where it can be presented to a Grand Jury and further, if indicted, to the Circuit Court and present to the Court through the District Attorney.  The case then is in control of the District Attorney to then present the facts and evidence of the case to a Judge and Jury.  Investigators are ultimately responsible for the evidence collected by the entire Sheriff's Department and maintain the integrity of the evidence until it is needed in court and/or is ordered to be destroyed.
