The Fannin County Sheriff’s Office, Criminal Investigations Division (C.I.D.) is tasked with investigating all crimes that are not solved by deputies initiating the preliminary investigation. Investigators become involved in an investigation in one of two ways.
First, an individual investigator is always on call, and may be requested any time day or night by responding deputies. Second, each report that is written in the field is reviewed by the C.I.D. commander, and then assigned to a particular investigator that is trained to conduct such investigations. In addition to investigations, C.I.D. is responsible for the maintenance of evidence and property related to criminal cases and the supervision of sex offenders and the sex offender registry.
Additionally, C.I.D. conducts proactive and reactive investigations based upon citizen concerns and information. These investigations often include locating and apprehending fugitives, drug and narcotic search and seizures, and locating stolen property.
