The Grant Parish Sheriff’s Detective's Division is comprised of highly trained Detectives, who investigate serious crimes requiring specialized investigative techniques. Each case is reviewed and is then assigned to a trained investigator for follow-up, based on the type of crime and the investigator's expertise.
Members of the division are “General Assignment” meaning they investigate everything from harassing phone calls to homicides, including rapes, robberies, burglaries and other crimes. Detectives conduct interviews, examine crime scenes, follow-up leads, execute search warrants as well as assist crime scene technicians in processing, photography, and forensic evidence gathering and handling for future court purposes. Detectives are responsible for the case as a whole during an investigation and see it through all the way to its final resolution. During large scale criminal investigations, detectives often work in collaboration with other area local, state, and federal law enforcement agencies in order to pool resources and more effectively solve crimes.
The detective's division also manage the Technology Forensics Unit, which investigates crimes involving technology devices and examines them using specialized software and techniques.
Detectives are on call 24 hours a day, seven days a week, on a rotational basis to respond to emergency investigative needs but are normally available Monday through Friday 8:00 am to 4:00 pm to provide assistance when needed.
