Division Commander

The Sheriff’s Investigations Division staff includes Criminal Investigators, Crime Scene Evidence Technician, and the members of the Public Administrator’s Office. These detectives conduct criminal investigations that are often lengthy and require specialized training and experience in the areas of Child Abuse and Sexual Assualt, Homicide, Kidnapping, Narcotics, Domestic Violence, Elder Abuse, Burglary, Fraud, Grand Theft, and other crimes. Evidence Technicians support investigators by photographing, collecting, and storing evidence from crime scenes, performing fingerprint identification, and processing applicants for various public agencies. The law mandates the Public Administrator’s Office to take charge of estates when no other qualifies to do so.

The Investigations Division is managed by a Captain and Administrative Lieutenant. The investigative staff includes 5 sergeants, 15 Detective Investigators, 3 Coroner Investigators, 1 High Tech Crime Investigator, and 2 Rural Crime Investigators organized into the following five units: Crimes Against Persons, Child Abuse and Sexual Assault, Narcotics, and Crimes Against Property. The Technical staff includes an Evidence Technician III Supervisor, 9 Evidence Technicians II, and 1 Evidence Technician I. The Public Administrator’s Staff includes 1 Chief Deputy Public Administrator, 2 Deputy Public Administrators, and 1 Accounting Technician II.

Units and teams

Child abuse and sexual assault unit

The CASA unit is responsible for child abuse, sexual assault, elder physical abuse, missing children, and the monitoring of sex registrants. Investigators assigned to this unit receive specialized training in sexual assault, child abuse, and missing persons investigations.

Persons unit

The Persons Unit’s responsibility is to investigate crimes against persons such as robbery, kidnapping, murder, assaults, rape, juvenile crime, and any other crime against persons. The Persons Unit has investigators who have specialized training in the investigation of homicide cases and also on location for gathering and processing evidence at crime scenes.

Property crimes unit

The Property unit is made up of investigators who investigate crimes against property such as burglary, documents, theft, embezzlement, bad checks, and any other crimes against property. The unit has specially trained investigators. The San Joaquin County Sheriff’s Office investigates all property crimes that occur in the unincorporated areas of San Joaquin County.

If you are a victim of burglary or a property-related crime, investigative services attempt to respond with patrol. The documentation process may include photographs, a check for latent prints, and a written narrative regarding the condition of the crime scene. While this is an important process, there are other factors even more important in the probability of your case being solved. It has been our experience that most cases are solved through the tracking of property (serial numbers), word of mouth, and citizen observations.
