Investigations Unit

All investigators who work at the State Attorney’s Office are certified law enforcement officers with full arrest powers.

Investigators can be assigned to specific units or divisions.  They are responsible for conducting independent criminal investigations.  They also provide assistance to outside police agencies and help attorneys prepare for trial.

After a case is filed at the State Attorney’s Office, the investigators may locate and interview additional witnesses, collect additional evidence, and secure records through subpoenas or search warrants.

In addition, investigators may independently review a case where a police officer could have acted improperly.  For example, if a police officer shoots a defendant, the investigators assist the prosecutors in determining if that shooting was justified under Florida State Statute.
