Commissioned personnel of the Sheriff’s Investigative Division conduct thorough investigations of crimes occurring in unincorporated Spokane County and in municipalities that have contracted with the Sheriff’s Office for service. During 2001, over 28,000 crimes were reported to the Investigative Division. Once a report is received at the Investigative Division a supervisor reviews it and decides if it will be assigned to an investigator. The decision to assign the report is based on several factors to include: named suspects, identifiable suspect vehicle, type of crime, special circumstances concerning the crime, and other crimes being currently investigated of a high priority.


The Investigative Division consists of 17 commissioned officers assigned to Crimes Against Persons, 15 commissioned officers assigned to Crimes Against Property and 14 commissioned officers conducting drug investigations.
