All information collected is then prepared in the form of a case file that is submitted to the Lee County District Attorney's Office for review by a grand jury. The members of the grand jury are charged with the task of determining if the case should continue to a court of law for trial.
During a typical year, the Lee County Sheriff's Office Investigations Division handles nearly 3,000 cases involving all types of offenses from simple thefts to homicides.
