The Detective section of the department handles the most complex law enforcement investigations confronted by the Sheriff's Department. From the crime of murder to large thefts, the detective unit is responsible for investigating a myriad of crimes.

The unit is made up of five detectives who are assigned to investigate major crimes which occur throughout the county and three detectives who are assigned to investigate agricultural crimes (Rural Crime Task Force). The Support Division is supervised by the Detective Sergeant under the command of a Sheriff's Commander.

The detectives have investigated many violent crimes and have successfully been able to prosecute the criminal offenders. Sheriff detectives focus on maintaining a positive working relationship with the community in an attempt to protect our citizens. 
Additionally, they continue to work in concert with many local agencies as well as State and Federal agencies to provide the best service possible.
