Criminal Investigations

The Investigations Division consists of a Lieutenant, three Investigators and one part-time forensic technician. The division handles all major criminal investigations such as homicide, rape, narcotics trafficking and complex financial crimes. Investigators also assist patrol deputies who may require support with an investigation, additional manpower or specific expertise.

The Investigations Division adopts a regional approach to law enforcement, working closely with surrounding jurisdictions, state and federal agencies. The mission of the Investigations Division is to solve crimes that have already occurred and to prevent crime by identifying, analyzing and addressing conditions that allow crime to occur in the first place.
