  HomeDivisions > Investigations Division

The Investigations Division is assigned the duty of determining the facts in reported incidents by collecting evidence, interviewing witnesses and gathering incident specific information to establish if a criminal act has occurred.  If facts support that a crime has been committed, the division's focus shifts to identifying a suspect and apprehending the person or persons responsible.  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.
