How are crimes investigated?
When a crime is reported, a deputy responds to the scene. Once the deputy deems the scene as safe, the deputy will begin an investigation if necessary. Depending on the incident, the deputy may perform interviews, seal off the crime scene, and locate evidence. After the preliminary investigation is complete, any follow-up that is needed may be handled by detectives.
