Criminal Investigations Division

The OCSO Criminal Investigations Division (CID) is comprised of five sections: Criminal Investigations Section (Violent/Special Victims Unit, Property Crimes, Crimes against Children, Financial Crimes and Polygraph), Special Investigations Section (Multi-Agency Drug Task Force, Fugitive Warrants, Homeland Security/Cyber Unit and Street Crimes Unit), Crime Prevention, the Evidence/Crime Scene Section and our Real-Time Crime Center. Many of our Investigators participate as Federal Task Force Officers with our federal partners to include Federal Bureau of Investigations, Drug Enforcement Administration, Alcohol Tobacco & Firearms, Office of Homeland Security, United States Marshal Violent Fugitive Task Force, and the Internal Revenue Service. Participation in the task forces allows our agency to utilize the resources and authority of the federal government to help arrest and prosecute defendants who conduct criminal activity outside of our county and state but have a direct impact on the citizens of our county.
