The Criminal Investigations Section is divided into four different units:
General Investigations is responsible for investigating general crimes against people and property. Some of the crimes against people that the unit investigates includes aggravated assaults, robberies, kidnappings, domestic and adult sexual assaults and current and cold case homicides. The crimes against property that the unit investigates includes aggravated burglary, theft, vandalism, embezzlement, and fraud. Through the investigative process, members of the General Investigations unit interview witnesses and victims and interrogate suspects to prepare cases for prosecution. Within the General Investigations Unit, there are specialized investigators who handle Juvenile Services and the Sex Offender Registry. The unit is comprised of one Lieutenant, two Investigator Sergeants, eight Investigators, one Unit Coordinator, one Victim/Witness Coordinator and the Evidence & Supply Technician.
The Juvenile Service Office is responsible for the investigation of all crimes against children and juveniles and is also responsible for crimes involving juvenile suspects. Some examples of the cases handled by the Juvenile investigator are child abuse and neglect, child sexual abuse, missing and abducted children, and any crime that might involve juvenile suspects or victims. The Juvenile Services office may also prepare juvenile petitions for delinquent or unruly juveniles to be issued by the Juvenile Court of Montgomery County.
The Sex Offender Registry is maintained by an investigator of the General Investigation section. Tennessee State Law requires the registration and annual or quarterly report of sexual offenders. Violation of this is a felony with mandatory jail sentences and minimum fines established. Please visit the Montgomery County Sex Offender Registry page to obtain more information.
Environmental Enforcement is responsible for responding to all illegal dumping, littering, and hazardous spill calls. The unit consists of one Investigator Sergeant, four Deputy Sheriffs who are part of the Litter Abatement Program of the Montgomery County Workhouse, and one Reserve Deputy Sheriff.
