What We Do
General Assignment Detectives are responsible for investigating incidents involving crimes against persons, crimes against property, and all other crimes against the public. Special Investigations encompass crimes against children, fugitive apprehension, domestic violence/sexual assault, polygraph, and drug related crimes. CID personnel are trained in numerous investigative techniques to include crime scene analysis and reconstruction, crime scene processing, bloodstain pattern analysis, and the collection of key evidence to include DNA, gunshot residue, latent prints, footwear impressions, etc.
The CID is committed to providing the citizens of Cleveland County with an investigative response that is timely and thorough. Every reported incident is reviewed for possible assignment to a Detective. Each report is subjected to a solvability formula that assigns points to various factors and determines which incidents have the most likely chance for a successful investigative resolution.
CID is also constantly working with other members of the Sheriff’s Office and other Law Enforcement Agencies throughout Oklahoma.
