The Criminal Investigations Division currently consists of 14 members. Captain Carlos Ricks and Lieutenant Dirk Lehman oversee the day-to-day operations of the Division. The remaining members include three evidence technicians, three juvenile crimes/sex offense investigators, and seven general case investigators.
All incidents reported to the Sheriff's Office, that are not cleared by the Patrol Division, are assigned for investigation. The Criminal Investigations Division continues to use a case management program. This enables us to keep up with statistics, dispositions, clearance rates, and accountability of all crimes reported.
The Investigations Division will continue to work closely with it's neighboring law enforcement agencies in an effort to continue to reduce crime or at least maintain the crime rate to that comparable with the state and strive to give the citizens of Nash County all of the support and professionalism they deserve.
